South Australia 7 for 93 (Ferguson 48, Butterworth 5-29) trail Tasmania 3 for 403 dec (Doolan 149, Cosgrove 104, Ponting 85*) by 310 runs
Luke Butterworth ensured that South Australia's miserable Sheffield Shield form continued at Adelaide Oval, where they collapsed to be 7 for 93 at stumps on the second day. It was an especially disappointing result for the Redbacks after Tasmania piled up 3 for 403 in their first innings, before declaring with Ricky Ponting within sight of a century, on 85, as rain affected the early part of the day.
Gary Putland removed Alex Doolan for 149 and Tasmania added 49 to their overnight total before the declaration came. But the Redbacks immediately found the going tough when it was their turn to bat as Butterworth struck twice in the third over of the innings, getting rid of Phillip Hughes and Tom Cooper, before Sam Miller (23) and Callum Ferguson (48) rebuilt with a 65-run stand.
However, they were the only two South Australians to reach double-figures by the close of play, as Butterworth and James Faulkner ran through the middle order. Butterworth finished with 5 for 29 and Faulkner had 2 for 10, and by stumps South Australia were staring at yet another potential defeat.
