What a thriller in the end, coming down to the last over despite a very low scoring game. Noffke was outstanding with bat and ball, steadying the innings with a top score for WA of 43. McDermott, Laughlin and Cutting were all great with the ball for Qld

Carseldine got the first 50 for the new season but it wasn't enough as Noffke had the last laugh against his old side, taking Man of the Match honours in the process.

That's it from me, Andrew Fuss. Until next time, good night.

Simpson to Knowles, 2 runs
puts it over square leg for the winning runs, they finally get across the line!
49.2
Simpson to Knowles, no run
pushed to mid wicket, Dorey takes off and should have been run out as Simpson fumbles at the bowler's end. The drama continues!

Just a bit of pressure on the number 10 here. Field is up
