Ford Ranger Cup

Tasmania v Queensland

Queensland won by 41 runs

Good morning and welcome to Bellerive. A lot of rain about the place in the past few days, but the covers have been on and it looks like we'll be underway on time. Queensland have won the toss and will bat. Tasmania sit second, Queensland third so there is plenty riding on this game. Should be a bit of juice in the pitch early with the moisture about the place. Play will get underway at 11.15 EDT... I'm Andrew Fuss and look forward to having your company throughout the day.
