Queensland have recalled Greg Moller for his first Sheffield Shield match of the season after losing both their first-choice openers to injury. Moller has not played for the Bulls since November last year and he will open the batting with Wade Townsend for the four-day game against New South Wales at the Gabba starting on Friday.

The new-look combination came after the Bulls lost their preferred openers Ryan Broad to a thumb injury and Nick Kruger to a hip problem. Kruger was on Thursday having scans to assess the extent of his injury, which forced him to bat with a runner during Wednesday's FR Cup match.

Craig Philipson has also been included in a 12-man squad and could play his first Sheffield Shield game since March 2007, following strong performances in the one-day arena this summer. Queensland have also gained James Hopes, Chris Swan and Ryan Harris, who have returned from injuries and replaced Luke Feldman, Nathan Rimmington and Daniel Doran.

New South Wales have included the left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc in their 12-man group. Starc has replaced Burt Cockley, who has been diagnosed with stress fractures of the back and is likely to be out of action for three months.

Queensland squad Greg Moller, Wade Townsend, Lee Carseldine, Nathan Reardon, Craig Philipson, Chris Simpson (capt), James Hopes, Chris Hartley (wk), Chris Swan, Ryan Harris, Ben Cutting, Scott Walter.

New South Wales squad Phillip Hughes, Phil Jaques, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Ben Rohrer, Steven Smith, Moises Henriques, Daniel Smith (wk), Grant Lambert, Stuart Clark (capt), Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc.
