The Queensland cricket team was established way back in 1882. However, it was not till 1892-93 that the state was granted first-class status by the powers that be. The state got admission to the Sheffield Shield in the 1926-27 season. Since then, it has proven to be one of the most important members of the domestic cricket structure of the country.

Having won the Sheffield Shield title on five occasions from 1995, Queensland has been one of the most successful domestic sides in Australia in the new millennium. Over the course of their history, the state has produced some of Australia's finest cricketers even as many others have made their careers after moving to Queensland. Here are ten of the best players to represent the state.

Former Australian fast bowler Michael Kasprowicz's international career might have been limited to only 38 Test matches and 43 one day internationals. But he remains a colossus of Queensland cricket. Kasprowicz was only 17 years old when he made his first appearance for the state in 1989. Over the course of the next 19 years, he became one of the best bowlers in the state's history.

Kasprowicz's medium pace bowling with just the right amount of seam movement and ability to bowl tirelessly made him the highest wicket-taker in Queensland's first-class history with 498 wickets. His career also coincided with many Sheffield Shield victories for the state.
