ESPNcricinfo staff

South Australia 223 & 4 for 32 (Swan 3-14) lead Queensland 196 (Broad 65, Cassell 6-53) by 59 runs

Chris Swan gave South Australia a huge fright after Rob Cassell's first five-wicket haul had put them on top at Allan Border Field. Queensland were dismissed in the second session for 196, giving the Redbacks a 27-run advantage, but the visitors were soon the side under pressure and went to stumps at 4 for 32.

Swan followed his six wickets in the first innings with 3 for 14 off eight overs, and was responsible for dropping South Australia to 3 for 10 in the fifth over. Luke Feldman also chipped in to take care of Aiden Blizzard and set up an intriguing third day.

Cassell switched from Victoria during the winter and produced a stunning haul in only the fifth first-class match of his career. Ryan Broad (65) and Ben Dunk (35) had Queensland on track at 3 for 118 before Cassell and Dan Christian struck under the cloudy skies.

Cassell finished with 6 for 53 from 16.1 overs while Christian collected 2 for 42. James Hopes (30) and Cameron Boyce (31) pushed Queensland closer to their target, but Cassell secured the two points when he caught-and-bowled Boyce.
