Ashton Turner's Western Australia will lean on their big game experience in Tuesday's one-day domestic cricket final against Queensland.

But with the Bulls welcoming back Test aspirant Michael Neser and boasting in-form Usman Khawaja, they may need more than that to triumph at Allan Border Field.

Cameron Bancroft, Shaun Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Jhye Richardson, D'Arcy Short and Nathan Coulter-Nile headline the list of talent on show for the visitors at the boutique northern Brisbane venue.

Western Australia have won two domestic titles since Queensland claimed their most recent in 2013/14, while the Perth Scorchers have also claimed three Big Bash League trophies.

Big-hitting Turner says the experience in that group counts for plenty in high-stakes games like Tuesday's.

"We pride ourselves on being able to win big games, and tomorrow is a really big game," the captain said.

"There's a lot of confidence in our squad and it comes from prior success and international experience.

"We've been in this position before and we've put ourselves in un-ideal positions throughout this tournament and been able to get out of quite a few of them."

Their late-October clash with Queensland on the Gold Coast wasn't one of those, the Warriors crumbling in a failed run chase of just 269.

Khawaja has averaged 93 during the tournament with two centuries and an unbeaten 86 to lead the Bulls to top spot.

Bowler Neser has been cleared to play too after missing a Test debut at the Gabba.

Big-hitter Ben Cutting, fresh off losing the T10 League final in Abu Dhabi to Chris Lynn's Maratha Arabians on Monday morning, won't make it back in time to feature.

"Home final, home fans, a one-day final's always a good time," Khawaja said.

"They're a very good side (the Warriors), have played beautifully too. Whoever wins tomorrow deserves to win."
