Ferguson ton puts South Australia in charge

South Australia 4 for 304 (Ferguson 137*, Ludeman 98*) v Victoria
Scorecard

Callum Ferguson continued his outstanding start to the Sheffield Shield season, producing his second century in three games to put South Australia in control on the first day against Victoria at Adelaide Oval. By stumps, the Redbacks were 4 for 304 with Ferguson still at the crease on 137 and wicketkeeper Tim Ludeman on 98, within sight of his second first-class hundred.

Ferguson began the campaign with 100 not out and 65 not out against Queensland and is now the leading run scorer in the competition. His 11th first-class century ensured Victoria could not build on the early wickets they claimed; South Australia were 3 for 44 after some struggles against the new ball.

Peter Siddle had Phillip Hughes caught at slip for 7 and finished the day with figures of 1 for 34 from 17 overs. Spinner Jon Holland picked up two wickets and Chris Tremain collected one. Travis Head scored 31 for South Australia before Ferguson and Ludeman came together for their unbeaten 197-run partnership.
