Rogers leads strong Victoria reply

ESPNcricinfo staff

Victoria 1 for 201 (Rogers 103*, Quiney 52) trail South Australia 8 for 431 dec (Ferguson 140, Ludeman 106) by 230 runs

Tim Ludeman went on to score a hundred on day two for South Australia, and help them get into a comfortable enough position to declare, but their advantage was quickly diminished by Victoria's openers. Rob Quiney did not kick on from the start he had - 52 in a partnership of 130 - but Chris Rogers did. Rogers completed his 71st first-class century by stumps, getting Victoria almost halfway to South Australia's 431 for the loss of just one wicket.

He got good support from Marcus Stoinis, who finished the day unbeaten on 37.

Ludeman had begun the day two short of three figures, and though he got there, he could not add considerably to his overnight score - he was out for 106. The same can be said of the other centurion, Callum Ferguson, who added only three to his overnight 137. But quick cameos from Johan Botha, Joe Mennie and Adam Zampa - his 33 came off just 12 balls with two fours and three sixes - ensured they could go ahead and declare.
