Twenty20 Big Bash

Queensland v New South Wales

New South Wales won by 5 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

Hello and welcome to the Gabba for the first KFC T20 match of the season. I'm Marc Ellison and I look forward to bringing you tonight's game We have a carnival atmosphere here tonight, so look forward to plenty of action, plenty of sixes and hopefully plenty of enjoyment for both the players and the fans! There's a chance of a late storm here, so lets hope it stays away until after the game so that we can all see the full 40 overs. Just a slight hold up here as the promotional guys complete a contest for an amateur to face one delivery and score as many runs as he can to win caaaassshh! The Bulls walk out to bat amidst some fireworks, lets home there's some more from the players! Hopes to face Bolliger, should be a good contest this one.
