South Australia's talented pair of Mark Cosgrove and Dan Cullen has been cleared to make comebacks from injury against Queensland at the Gabba. Cosgrove has shrugged off a calf strain and will play in the ING Cup match on Friday before joining Cullen, who has recovered from a broken finger, in the Pura Cup side for the game starting on Sunday.

However, Matthew Elliott is still unavailable with a knee injury and Shane Deitz, the top-order batsman, has missed both 13-man squads. The Pura Cup match could have a serious impact at the top of the table with Queensland in second place, two points behind Victoria and two ahead of South Australia and New South Wales.

Daniel Harris has also been added to the one-day side and the Redbacks have the chance to seal a spot in the final if they beat the last-placed Bulls. South Australia trail New South Wales by five points, but they have a one-point buffer over Victoria, who are third.
