The Maroons fought back from a horror start to the week, losing their first two matches, to defeat

the two-time defending champions in a major upset. Ma ro o n s ca pt a i n W o rrin Williams said he was very proud to lead his side to victory. ‘‘How good was that? Nothing can beat that,’’ he said. ‘‘We didn’t even think we were

going to be in the final after that first day.’’ A five-wicket loss to Victoria, coupled with a three-wicket defeat against New South Wales had the Maroons on the back foot. ‘‘The results just went our way and we just kept on building our

form and, thanks to the Western Australian boys for beating Victoria, so we made the final.’’ After getting sent in to bat, Queensland scorched through 10 overs, racing to 79 before Williams was run out for 26. ■ Imparja Cup wrap: P26-27
