Queensland's hopes of hosting the final suffered a big blow when they undid their solid work after dismissing Western Australia for 286 on the opening day at the Gabba. The Bulls need an outright win to keep the pressure on the leaders Victoria and Nathan Coulter-Nile upset them with three wickets to drop them to 5 for 62.

Wade Townsend exited to the second ball of the innings when caught behind off Steve Magoffin before Coulter-Nile ran through the hosts with 3 for 1 in a five-over spell. Ryan Broad (17) was Luke Ronchi's second catch, two overs later Chris Lynn was well caught by Michael Swart at third slip and Craig Philipson (30) was also forced into an edge. Coulter-Nile then chipped in with the catch of Nathan Reardon to give Magoffin his second.

Luke Pomersbach steadied the Warriors with 74 and Swart added 57 after they had slipped to 2 for 14. Marcus North (8) was one of the early victims as his poor run continued, but his day brightened when he learned he was still part of Australia's Test plans.

Luke Feldman was the main problem for Western Australia with 4 for 79, taking his haul to 28 in six games of his first season, while Chris Swan provided support with 3 for 63. The wicketkeeper Chris Hartley benefited from both bowlers as he collected six catches.
