A collapse from Queensland has given South Australia a strong chance of victory in Brisbane, where the Redbacks finished the second day with an enormous lead of 290 runs and ten wickets in hand after not enforcing the follow-on. At stumps, South Australia were 0 for 22 with Sam Raphael on 11 and Michael Klinger on 5, after Chadd Sayers and Joe Mennie each claimed three wickets to help the side skittle Queensland for 135.

The Bulls were in big trouble at 3 for 14 and then 4 for 30, and it took some lower-order runs from Chris Hartley (33) and Ben Cutting (28) to get them up to triple figures. However, none of the home batsmen were able to match the efforts of Tom Cooper and Johan Botha, who were still at the crease at the start of the second day and went on to extend their partnership to 164 runs.

Cooper finished with 175 when he was caught off the bowling of Luke Feldman and Botha missed the chance for his second first-class hundred when he fell to Cameron Gannon for 95. James Hopes ended up with 4 for 71 but South Australia's 403 was likely to mean a loss for his side.

What were South Australia thinking, declining the follow-on then plodding along at 2 runs an over?
