Queensland v Tasmania Match abandoned
Scorecard

Torrential rain washed out the Ryobi Cup match between Queensland and Tasmania at the Gabba without a ball being bowled. Brisbane and the surrounding areas suffered exceptionally heavy rainfalls on Sunday as ex-tropical cyclone Oswald moved down the coast.

The abandonment could be significant in shaping the final points table, with the Bulls sitting third and the Tigers fourth with two matches each remaining. Victoria and South Australia are at the top of the table.

    This game was important for a number of aspirants. Im sure that Cowan would be looking to push his cause given his lean run and his 1st class average dropping below 40 again. There would also be concern about his low S/R and inability to turn the strike over against tight and persistent Indian spin bowling. I think a good showing by Doolan would garner him further support. For QLD, there has been interest in Burns who only has 4 1st class hundreds in 39 innings but has reasonable numbers. I think Hauritz would be looking to throw his name into the mix given the dearth of quality spin options and his batting credentials. Only Lyon and O'Keefe seem reasonable options.Khawaja will be looking to improve on his season average of 39 & his last start Shield game of 0 & 8 from 39 balls. Questions are being asked about his ability to take his opportunities at the highest level. To push his case, I would expect at least 2 more Shield hundreds and a season average above 50 to put it beyond doubt

    Meanwhile, we're sitting in Tasmania basking in the sunshine. Funny how our weather is always bagged. With the terrible weather forecasts in Brisbane, perhaps some thought could have been given to the Bulls flying to Hobart for such an important game. All too hard, I guess !!!!

    Tasmania look to have done their dash now with this washout. I had thought they were a pretty good bet for top-three, especially with Ponting and Paine in the mix.

    Shame it got washed out, i was predicting big innings from Khawaja for the Bulls and Punter for Tasmania, We missed out on a cracker of a match.

    I know there was a cyclone up North, but reckon if it was a position where Sri Lanka had to bat this game would have got under way as the ACB is clearly against Sri Lanka.
