Players/Officials: Tim Paine
Grounds: Bellerive Oval

Tim Paine will make his return from a finger injury when Bellerive Oval hosts its first domestic match under lights on Sunday. The Hobart ground had the floodlights installed during the off-season and the FR Cup game between Tasmania and Western Australia will be the first day-night match held at the ground.

Wade Irvine has been dropped for the clash to make was for Paine's comeback. Paine has not played since October after breaking his finger during Australia's one-day international tour of India.

Paine is part of a 12-man squad that the Tigers hope can push them into third spot on the FR Cup table. They are in fourth position with three wins and three losses, like the third-placed Western Australia, who have also picked up a bonus point.

Tasmania squad Michael Dighton, Tim Paine (wk), Ed Cowan, George Bailey (capt), Travis Birt, Luke Butterworth, James Faulkner, Brett Geeves, Jason Krejza, Xavier Doherty, Brendan Drew, Gerard Denton.
