Scorecard

South Australia's bowlers failed to dismiss Victoria in the follow-on and had to settle for a draw at the Adelaide Oval. The two points put South Australia at No. 2 in the Sheffield Shield, level with toppers Western Australia on 26 points but behind on net run rate.

The final day had begun with Victoria on 2 for 93 in the follow-on, still 109 away from avoiding an innings defeat. Marcus Stoinis and Cameron White resumed steadily enough, stretching their overnight stand of 64 to 113. However, they fell in quick succession to Joe Mennie, and Victoria's first-innings centurion Glenn Maxwell was lbw to Chadd Sayers for 4. At 5 for 171, Victoria still trailed by 31.

David Hussey and Matthew Wade had a 45-run stand that ensured South Australia would have to bat again, but it was the partnership between Wade and John Hastings that thwarted the hosts' hopes of victory. Hastings made 47 and Wade remained unbeaten on 71; Victoria were ahead by 132 when the game was called off.
