The opening day of the Kookaburra T20 championships in the Bulls Masters First Grade competition will feature two rounds, with Allan Border Field hosting two games as part of the competition.

If you can’t make it down to any games, then you can always tune into the livestreams on https://matchcentre.premier.qld.cricket.com.au/ or Queensland Cricket’s YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/XXXXGOLDQldBulls 

Several Brisbane Heat players will embrace the chance to emerge from home isolation and recent quarantine requirements to take to the field with their Premier clubs.

Among those in action will be:

Chris Lynn (Toombul)
James Bazley (Redlands)
Xavier Bartlett (Gold Coast)
Max Bryant (Gold Coast)
Sam Heazlett (Redlands)
Matt Kuhnemann (Gold Coast)
Ben Laughlin (Sunshine Coast)
Jimmy Peirson (Redlands)
Matthew Willans (University of Qld)
Jack Wildermuth (Valley)
 
As well, Cameron Boyce (Valley –  Melbourne Renegades), Matt Renshaw (Toombul –  Adelaide Strikers), Brendan Doggett (Wests - Sydney Thunder), Ben Cutting (South Brisbane – Sydney Thunder) and Usman Khawaja (Valley – Sydney Thunder) will be other BBL players in the mix.

The two rounds will also provide valuable exposure for State-contracted and other Premier players who may be snapped up as replacement players during the BBL which gets underway on 10 December. 

The T20 competition will continue next weekend, including the annual 'Rivalry Round'.
