Graham Manou made an unbeaten 79 to keep South Australia on target for a competitive first innings at the Adelaide Oval, amid reports that his future with the Redbacks is in doubt. Manou was still at the crease at stumps with the debutant Chadd Sayers on 14, as South Australia reached 6 for 255 against the top-of-the-table Tasmania.

The Tigers have need only first-innings points to secure a home Sheffield Shield final against New South Wales, and when the Redbacks were 2 for 39 Tasmania seemed on target for their goal. But Daniel Harris (65) helped rebuild the innings with Tom Moffat, who made 36, before Manou continued the effort.

And with the former Victoria assistant coach Darren Berry having signed on as the new South Australia coach, there is speculation that Manou's days could be numbered. Reports have suggested that the former Victoria wicketkeeper Adam Crosthwaite, who was bumped aside when Matthew Wade took the gloves with the Bushrangers, might be recruited under Berry.

"The way I'm going at the moment, I'd like to play forever," Manou told AAP after the first day. "I'm still feeling like I'm playing really well."
