New South Wales 1 for 38 trail South Australia 182 (Botha 53, Sandhu 4-58) by 144 runs
Gurinder Sandhu's four wickets put New South Wales in a strong position against South Australia after day one of the Sheffield Shield match at the SCG.
The Redbacks are second on a tightly packed competition table, but struggled for traction on a well-grassed pitch in the face of Sandhu's bounce and Josh Hazlewood's economy, his 13 overs surrendering a mere 11 runs for the wickets of Callum Ferguson and Chadd Sayers.
Only South Australia captain Johan Botha made a score of note, punching a half-century to keep up his strong showing in the closing games of the season.
Left with 23 overs to face on a sticky, overcast day lending itself to swing bowling, the Blues lost David Dawson to the accurate Sayers, but Scott Henry and Daniel Hughes fought out the final hour to ensure their side can enter day two with plenty of confidence.
