South Australia vs Queensland
Only 50 overs were bowled at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide as the opening day's play was abandoned due to concerns over the pitch. While rain washed out the opening session, the batters struggled once play started with the ball taking off from a length. Joe Burns, who batted for 105 deliveries, fell to such a ball which hit the shoulder of his bat to slips. Bryce Street was batting on 45 and Marnus Labuschagne on 21 when it was decided that it was dangerous to continue.
