Queensland today defeated the CA XI in a low-scoring match at Churchie, with Norths leg-spinner Tom Nicholson snaring 6-20 from his 10 overs as the previously undefeated CA XI were dismissed for 87.

The young Maroons then scored 4-90 off 12.4 overs to claim the semi-final result. Gold Coast opener Jack Cooper, whose older brother Tom hit an unbeaten century last weekend for South Australia against Queensland in the JLT One Day Cup at Allan Border Field, top-scored with 59 not out for the home side.
