Tasmanian Tigers Men's Head Coach, Adam Griffith, has praised his side's opening JLT One-Day Cup performance - a comprehensive 65-run win against Victoria, ahead of their second match of the tournament against Queensland in Townsville on Saturday.
A lightning Matthew Wade century and four wickets each to Tom Rogers and Clive Rose were the top individual performances on Wednesday, but it was the overall team effort which pleased Griffith the most.
"We are very happy with the way we played to start the season," said Griffith.
"We are working hard on our game plan and how we want to play, and I think against Victoria we saw the guys work hard to play that way.
"Also, it was very pleasing to play the way we did after just one practice match, which highlights the hard work the group had put in leading up to the tournament."
That Tigers' sole practice match before the tournament was a loss to Queensland in Brisbane last Wednesday week, which Griffith says he and his side learnt a lot from to be well prepared this week.
"We're looking forward to testing ourselves against a good Bulls side," said Griffith.
"We learnt a bit about some of their young batters the other day.
However, they have a few players coming in, we will just plan for them as we do in our normal preparation and planning and look forward to the contest."
The 2017-18 Sheffield Shield Final was the last time the Tasmanian Tigers met the Queensland Bulls in a proper competition match.
