South Australia 5 for 101 (Copeland 3-22) v New South Wales 157 (Haddin 56, Sayers 5-54, Mennie 4-39)
Fifteen wickets fell on a day when the ball did just enough to catch the edge, allowing New South Wales to regain ground lost earlier when bowled out for 157 by South Australia in the Sheffield Shield match at Adelaide Oval.
Winning the toss and batting first, the Blues were confounded by the medium fast seamers of Chadd Sayers, who maintained his sterling form this summer by plucking 5 for 54, including the first four of the innings.
Brad Haddin mounted a partial recovery in the company of David Dawson, posting an aggressive half-century, but both were dismissed soon after lunch and SA were batting before tea.
They began uneventfully enough, Michael Klinger and Sam Raphael reaching 37 without loss, before five wickets tumbled for 14. Trent Copeland shared the wickets with Doug Bollinger, and continued to probe for further breakthroughs while Tim Ludeman and Jake Brown tried to regroup in the final hour.
