Twenty20 Big Bash

South Australia v Queensland

South Australia won by 10 runs

Good evening and welcome to the Adelaide Oval. It's 36 degrees at the Oval for this clash between South Australia and Queensland. The Bulls have barely played since the floods in Brisbane. They have only played two games in the Big Bash so far. They may be a touch underdone. The wicket looks good. Michael Klinger won the toss and SA will bat first. This is Kieron Pollard's last game for the Redbacks in this series. He has been vital so far and will be a big key again tonight. Brad Ipson makes his debut for Queensland. Chris Lynn is out injured with a hand problem. Craig Philipson returns to the Bulls line-up. Ipson is a left-arm orthodox spinner who has played U17 and U19 cricket for Queensland over a decade ago, but he gets his senior debut tonight aged 30.

Not too far away from getting underway. Dan Harris and Michael Klinger will look to continue their terrific form at the top of the order for the Redbacks.
