Marnus at 6 is strange. He really should be opening, or first drop.

Pretty sure Bartlett isn't opening. I think the intension is alphabetical with Khawaja first as captain.

Yep, good call I skipped straight past Bartlett. I think I saw Uzzy opening, and a few others that made sense where they were like Pierson/Neser and just assumed lineup. Now I also see Renshaw below them, ignore me.

10. Gurinder Sandhu
11. Mitchell Swepson

My guess for the batting order, splits up the lefties & righties pretty nicely.

Nah Khawaja has been opening in one dayers since Christ was a baby. I don’t disagree with the 11 involved but the top order will be re-tweaked as I think Khawaja will open and I don’t think Heazlett will be 3. Marnus would be the right pick for 3 for us but it depends how much the Aussie set up influences our side this far out from the World Cup. In saying that 3 and 4 have little to no difference if it’s Marnus who will be batting there (not that I want him to but he has his nose in front at the minute). I think it might be:
1. Bryant
2. Khawaja
3. Labuschagne
4. Renshaw
5. Heazlett

Well far from what I thought the side would be. South Australia have the much stronger batting now. QLD won the toss and will bowl

Khawaja, Heazlett, Truloff, Renshaw, Bryant, Peirson, Neser, Bartlett, Sandhu, Swepson, Guthrie

Weatherald, Hunt, Head, Carey, McSweeney, Lehmann, McAndrew, Manenti, Agar, Thornton, Conway

Wonder why Marnus was named in the squad if not playing.

Steketee missing out is also strange.

Marnus became a father yesterday so that would rule him out. Steketee is an unusual one to miss out but Liam Guthrie might just be in some rare form. I guess we will find out

Bulls lost their way a bit 6/148 should not have become 278.

Too many extras and sloppy play.

Lights are on, AB looks great.

I was at the game yesterday. Very disappointing from the Bulls. After getting the key wickets of Head & Carey for less than 200 they really should have gone on with the job. Other than Heazlett who got a peach the rest of the top order threw their wickets away. Truloff did look classy though, those drives through extra cover were gorgeous.

It’s the Bulls / Heat way, throw wins away but look classy at times doing it to frustrate your fans.

He has been in England all pre-season and just came back. Chuck put him straight in.

Rare form- how can you be in rare form first game- good question.
