The Bulls will face South Australia at North Sydney Oval on Wednesday in another day/night match in the first elimination final of the competition where all six teams will play in a form of final.
Queensland could mathematically have finished as high as third had they achieved a bonus point win, as could have tonight’s opponents, but the Blues victory meant they finished fifth and Queensland took sixth.
Lynn blasted his highest domestic one day score for Queensland, with his 135 from 113 balls his second ton of the series.
Lynn was composed at the start but rapidly accelerated his innings to 100 and beyond.
He belted seven sixes, including one that went out of the ground towards Canada Bay, with Queensland adding another 10 sixes to their Foodbank Queensland total. The Bulls and Konica Minolta Queensland Fire have now contributed $4700 to the coffers of Foodbank with Queensland Cricket donating $100 for every six hit during the JLT One Day Cup and WNCL tournaments.
The Bulls finished with 296 and will rue a late innings clutter of wickets that saw them lose 7-50 and prevent them posting a score in excess of 320.
Opener Sam Heazlett continued his solid run at the top of the order, scoring 48 off 36 balls as he and Max Bryant put on another half century opening stand.

As it was, a brace of tons to teenager Jack Edwards and veteran Moises Henriques was enough to see the Blues chase down the target with overs to spare.
Lynn spent the latter half of the Queensland fielding innings off the field as a precaution, after being hit twice in the calf during his innings, once by an errant thrown and another from a delivery from returning Australian quick Pat Cummins.
The cold conditions at Drummoyne last night was enough for the Bulls medical staff to bring their star batsman off to avoid any chance of an injury.
Queensland had their fifth debutant of the series, with Valley allrounder Andrew Gode, awarded his cap today by his club teammate and close friend Luke Feldman.
