Former NSW and Tasmanian seamer Gurinder Sandhi, who has played limited overs cricket for Australia, has been included in the Bulls squad for the first time.
Sandhu, who relocated to Brisbane last year, plays in the KFC Queensland Premier Cricket competition with South Brisbane and has trained alongside the Bulls as part of the Elite Development Squad training program overseen by former Test quick Ryan Harris.
He is one of two debutants for Queensland in List A (one-day) cricket, along with fellow quick Connor Sully.
Sully, Sandhu, batsman Sam Heazlett and back-up wicket-keeper Lachlan Pfeffer all played in the KFC Queensland Premier Cricket competition on the weekend, with Sully also featuring in Norths' Kookaburra One Day Cup competition semi-final win over Valley under lights at Ian Healy Oval on Sunday night.
Blake Edwards drops out of the one-day squad after being troubled by leg cramps during the Shield game against Tasmania that finished in a high-scoring draw with Bryce Street and Jimmy Peirson leading the charge with the bat on what was a benign Karen Rolton Oval pitch.
Street hit a career-high 143 against the Tigers, while Peirson produced his second career Shield century, a sparkling 106no from 168 balls as Queensland tried to coax a result from the game by declaring 145 runs behind the Tigers hearty, but slowly scored, first innings of 6-500.
But Tasmania, which had lost 13 of the past 14 games against Queensland, opted against risking another defeat and steadfastly played out the final day until both teams agreed to call the contest off before tea.
Ironically, the Bulls mustered slightly more bonus points from the drawn game than their opponents.
Queensland now begin their one-day campaign with the limited overs clash against the Redbacks on Wednesday at Karen Rolton Oval, before re-setting and taking on South Australia at the Adelaide Oval from Friday.
The Bulls expect to be without pace spearhead Michael Neser for the Shield clash.
He and his fiancee Olivia, are expecting their first child on October 21 and he is set to forego the game against South Australia starting at Adelaide Oval on Friday to ensure he's safely home in Brisbane for the birth.
At this stage, the 31-year-old is planning to play in the Marsh One Day Cup match against SA at Rolton Oval on Wednesday before flying back to Queensland.
All five matches will be live streamed on Kayo and cricket.com.au. Marsh One-Day Cup matches will also be shown on Foxtel.
