Queensland have several match-winners in their side. The likes of Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne and Joe Burns have played several tests for Australia, and are must haves in your team. Moreover, Queensland are one of the top sides in the tournament, with their star-studded batting and bowling line-ups respectively.
Marnus Labuschagne was in red-hot form last season, when he smashed 821 runs in his eight matches at an impeccable average of 82.10. The right-hander ended as the third highest run-getter of the tournament. His last match came against New South Wales in the finals, where he smashed 192 runs to hand his team a hefty first innings lead.
Matt Renshaw is an important part of the Queensland team, given that he bats in the middle order and also bowls a few crucial overs.

His biggest knock came against Western Australia, where he scored 139 runs to give his side a valuable first innings lead.

Tasmania will be up against an uphill task as they clash against the defending champions, Queensland. Beau Webster will lead Tasmania, and will have to step up against one of the best sides of the tournament. Peter Siddle, experienced Australian bowler will lead the pace bowling department alongside the likes of Sam Rainbird and Lawrence Neil Smith.
Peter Siddle is one of the most experienced Australian bowlers, and he has been on the domestic circuit for a long period of time. Siddle picked up 18 wickets last season in his six matches at an average of 27.94. The Australian pacer missed the last match of the previous season against Western Australia owing to an injury.
Beau Webster will lead Tasmania in the opening match due to the absence of their regular captain, Matthew Wade. Last season, Webster had a decent outing with the ball, where he picked up 17 wickets in 8 matches at an average of around 40. He will be hoping to lead his side from the front this time around, both with the bat and ball.
Matthew Wade is unavailable for selection, as he is a part of the Australian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup. Tim Paine is unavailable for selection owing to a neck injury. Meanwhile, Jackson Bird is also not a part of the 13-man squad for the opener against Queensland. Bird was the highest wicket-taker for Tasmania last season, which would be a big blow for Tasmania. Nathan Ellis is also unavailable for selection, as he is playing in the IPL representing Punjab Kings.
