Bulls book place in cup decider

AN ACCOMPLISHED  88 not out from Usman Khawaja has helped the Queensland Bulls into their second Ryobi Cup final in succession with a comfortable 35-run win over the WA Warriors at North Sydney Oval yesterday.

The Bulls were cruising to victory when showers forced the players off for a second time with the Queenslanders in front on the Duckworth/Lewis method.

Earlier, Shaun Marsh was the only Warriors batsman to really trouble the Queensland bowlers in a magnificent knock of 119 off 129 balls in WA's total of 9-212.

Marsh and Hilton Cartwright (35) were the only WA players to get above 30, with Marsh hitting five sixes in his innings.

In reply, Khawaja hit 12 fours and a six in his innings as Queensland reached 3-145 off 29.5 overs when the rain stopped play for a final time.

Queensland will now play NSW or Victoria in Sunday's final whatever the result of yesterday's day/night game between NSW and the Redbacks. The Vics and NSW will play tomorrow to see who will face off against the Queensland Bulls on Sunday.
