Queensland Bulls completed a second straight win in the Marsh One-Day Cup to remain undefeated and at the top of the standings. The team from Brisbane managed to defeat Southern Redbacks in a near-perfect display and finished ahead by seven wickets.

Queensland ended up with 227/3 in 35.5 overs with a run rate of 6.33. On the other side, the Redbacks finished with 226/10 in 48.5 overs and with a run rate of 4.63. The bulls were also awarded a bonus point which will help them cement their place as the number one team in the competition.

Home team’s batters were up to the task from early on, with Max Bryant having 32 runs off 21 hits, and Sam Heazlet who managed to get another half-century of 51 runs off 42 balls.

The Bulls continued their dominance throughout the day, as the only Redback to perform a half-century was Tom Cooper (62) as a 9th wicket.

This was Queensland’s second win of the competition after they got the better of New South Wales in the first round. They are awaiting Victorian Bushrangers in the next match. The Redbacks will have a chance to get their first win of the Cup on Thursday as they face New South Wales.

We remind you that only the first two teams of the One-Day Cup will advance to the final. Each team will play five matches in the regular part of the season.

I’ve covered cricket since 2010. As a fan, I’ve followed cricket since I was able to hold a bat. After graduating from university, I was fortunate enough (thanks to a barrage of ‘hire me now, or else I’ll keep sending a million more applications to you’ style letters) to be taken on as an intern with Wisden Cricket Monthly Magazine (both published editions and online). Over the next few years, I applied myself and sacrificed all hope of personal life (not that there was one, but hey, this is my bio so I can write what I like) and turned my internship into sports writing gig. I recently migrated to The Sporty after I was offered, my own cricket team… ok, I was offered a position as Senior Sports Writer and given my own team, but as the saying goes ‘potatoe, potato’.
