Scorecard

Heavy overnight rain and morning showers ruined the third day of the Pura Cup match between Queensland and South Australia at Adelaide Oval. The weather will force the captains Jimmy Maher and Darren Lehmann to decide whether there is anything more than two points to play for after the Redbacks finished the second day at 3 for 89 chasing Queensland's first-innings 342.

"They can't get 17 wickets in a day, I think [declarations] are the only way we'll get a result so I'll certainly do my best, and it depends on what they want to do I suppose," Lehmann told AAP. "We'll both be very attacking tomorrow, but you can't control the weather."

A South Australia spokeswoman said 48mm of rain fell overnight and was followed by heavy morning showers, which stopped at about 12.15pm. However, puddles remained on the ground and the captains agreed to abandon play. Day four is scheduled to start at 10.30am local time with Greg Blewett on 43 and Lehmann on 5.
