Both teams ran out of time in their pursuit of victory as Queensland held on for a draw against South Australia in Adelaide. Despite the Redbacks controlling the game, they were able to take only five wickets on the final day as the visitors' batsmen proved too hard to remove and finished at 5 for 228.

The opener Ryan Broad held things together at the top of the order after the Bulls were set an unlikely 329 in less than 90 overs. After losing Nick Kruger and Wade Townsend by the time the score was 31, Broad dug in with Lee Carseldine in a crucial partnership of 98 that started the home side's doubts.

Carseldine's dismissal on 47, when he was ruled lbw off Dan Christian, helped the Redbacks' cause but by tea the hosts still needed seven wickets. They picked up Broad for 60 straight after the break and when Glen Batticciotto (17) was bowled by Jake Haberfield (3 for 52) in the following over they had a chance. However, Chris Hartley and Chris Simpson ensured there were no further setbacks.

South Australia had taken a 169-run lead on first innings and Michael Klinger and Cameron Borgas thrashed 48 in six overs on the fourth morning before the declaration at 2 for 159. Klinger added 92, which came from only 79 balls, to his first-innings 84 while Borgas finished with 32 not out to follow his unbeaten 164. Both sides are level at the top of the table on eight points but have played three games, one more than Western Australia and Tasmania, and two more than New South Wales and Victoria.
