Sheffield Shield 2021-22 – Queensland-South Australia Sheffield Shield clash hit by Brisbane floods


News

The game will now be a three-day contest starting on Thursday with extended hours for the remainder of the match

Organisers have abandoned the first day of play in the Sheffield Shield match between Queensland and South Australia at the Gabba due to Brisbane’s floods.

The match was scheduled to begin on Wednesday but Cricket Australia, Queensland Cricket and Stadiums Queensland agreed play on the first day would not be possible.

The game will now be a three-day contest starting on Thursday with extended hours for the remainder of the match.

“Considering the amount of rain that has fallen, Dave (Sandurski, Gabba curator) and his team have done amazing things to have a venue potentially ready to play,” Queensland Cricket chief executive Terry Svenson said.

The match is the fifth-placed Bulls’ penultimate game of the Shield campaign ahead of a clash with Tasmania in Hobart from March 23. The Redbacks are last on the ladder without a win from their six matches.

Both sides are depleted due to Australia squad members being away on the tour of Pakistan. Queensland are missing Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne and Mark Steketee while South Australia are without Travis Head and Alex Carey, with Henry Hunt set to captain South Australia for the first time.
