Chris Hartley, Queensland's reserve wicketkeeper, will captain the Queensland Academy of Sport 2nd XI for the first time against Tasmania, starting on Monday.

Hartley, 23, was one of the finds of last summer after scoring a century on debut and playing in the ING Cup and Pura Cup finals when Wade Seccombe was on international duty.

Seccombe has returned to the Bulls line-up for Sunday's opening ING Cup game against NSW at the Gabba.

The 2nd XI team for the four-day game includes two leg-spinners in the Norths wrist-spinner Greg Chiesa and Ryan Leloux, who is currently at the Cricket Academy.
