Scorecard

Moises Henriques destroyed South Australia's top order after Usman Khawaja raised his first double-century for New South Wales to leave the Blues in control after two days. Afternoon rain saved the Redbacks from any further embarrassment but they will need more help from the weather to avoid defeat over the next two days.

Henriques had James Smith and Michael Klinger both caught at slip and then followed with Daniel Harris lbw, before Trent Copeland continued the procession by bowling Cameron Borgas. It left South Australia at 4 for 56 at stumps, trailing by 473 on what the Blues proved was a fine batting surface.

Khawaja began the day on 175 and he soon progressed to his double-century, in an effort that could have earned him a call-up for the first Ashes Test had it not been for Marcus North's career-saving hundred in Bangalore. Khawaja was eventually out for 214, one of two wickets for Aaron O'Brien, who also removed Ben Rohrer (70).

New South Wales batted on while Brad Haddin quickly regained his touch in his first Sheffield Shield match back from an elbow injury. Haddin finished unbeaten on 54 from 57 deliveries when Stuart Clark called an end to the innings with the Blues comprehensively on top at 6 for 529.
