Injured Steketee out of Matador Cup final

CRICKET: The Queensland Bulls have rested injured fast bowler Mark Steketee from their squad for Sunday's Matador Cup one-day final. 

Steketee, who suffered a side strain during Queensland's win over Victoria earlier this week, is replaced by Peter George.  

The Bulls' opponent for Sunday's final will be decided tonight with defending champions New South Wales taking on Victoria in the elimination final at Drummoyne Oval.  

Ben Cutting, Queensland's leading wicket-taker so far in the tournament with 10 dismissals, will play his 50th one-day match for the Bulls in the final. 

Queensland has also announced its team for its first Sheffield Shield match of the season, which begins on Tuesday at the Gabba.

The Bulls will play NSW in a day-night clash using the pink ball as part of Australia's build-up to the international summer that will feature two day-night Tests, in Adelaide and at the Gabba. 

Bulls Matador Cup final squad: Usman Khawaja (c), Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Luke Feldman, Jason Floros, Peter Forrest, Cameron Gannon, Peter George, Charlie Hemphrey, Marnus Labuschagne, Michael Neser, Jimmy Peirson, Nathan Reardon, Mitch Swepson.
