Twenty20 Big Bash, Queensland v Tasmania at Brisbane, Jan 7, 2011
Queensland won by 8 wickets (with 37 balls remaining)
7 January 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Good evening and welcome to a soggy Gabba in Brisbane for tonight's Big Bash clash between the Queensland Bulls and Tasmanian Tigers. There has been so much rain in Queensland recently and Brisbane has not been spared. The Bulls have had to train indoors for weeks. It isn't raining at present. We should get a start. But there is more rain expected. Queensland won the toss and James Hopes elected to bowl first. The wicket looks good as curator Kevin Mitchell Jnr prepared it early with the rain in mind. Hopes reasoned that if it rains and there are adjustments to the total they chase they will be able adapt to the situation better than having to set a score.
