Queensland has two wins in three games and play two more games today in the T20 format.

In round 1, Queensland scored 1-133 but were overtaken by a New South Wales team which scored 6-134.

Flynn took 2-23 and Cooper 1-29. Neither got a bat.

Queensland had a bye in round 2 and beat Northern Territory in round 3.

Cooper was run out for one off one ball and Flynn made 10 with the bat but it was in bowling where they impressed, Flynn with 6-4 off 3.1 overs and Cooper 1-10 off two overs.

Last night, Queensland scored 3-103 to beat the Western Australian score of 9-102.

Flynn took 1-28 off four overs and neither Cooper or Flynn batted.
