The XXXX Queensland Bulls will stick with an unchanged line-up for Friday night's ING Cup clash with Victoria at the Gabba following their opening win of the season against Tasmania.

The Queensland selectors have also shown faith in the one-day line-up by naming the same twelve players for the Bulls opening Pura Cup match against the Bushrangers starting on Sunday at the Gabba.

The Pura Cup selection means that former Tasmanian and Western Australian representative Shane Jurgensen is set to make his first class debut for his home state.

If Jurgensen plays, he will become the 13th player to represent three States in Australian first class cricket.

University of Queensland batsman Steve Farrell, who was 12th man in the four-wicket win over the Tigers, is also a chance to making his first class debut while left-arm paceman Mitchell Johnson is in line to play his first Pura Cup match since 2001.

The Bulls players will take to the field against Victoria in their opening first class match of the summer with their initials and their order of selection for Queensland featured on their playing shirts.

Friday's ING Cup match starts at 2.30pm, with gates opening at 1.30pm.

A crowd in excess of 10,000 is expected, with the game being promoted as Volunteers' Day.

This is the third season in a row that Queensland Cricket, Volunteering Queensland and the Brisbane City Council have combined for a "thank-you" to the hard-working volunteers and voluntary organisations of Queensland.

Volunteering Queensland have provided complimentary tickets to their registered volunteers and organisations, with the BCC providing free Council buses to the game.
