Hussey, Siddle leave South Australia reeling
South Australia 5 for 134 (Lehmann 50*, Siddle 4-29) trail Victoria 6 for 534 (Hussey 142, Quiney 125, Zampa 3-145) by 400 runs
Victoria, who were already a commanding 4 for 347 when the day began, rode on a 178-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Hussey and Matthew Wade to compile 534, after which they declared. Hussey's runs came at a strike-rate of 83.52, as he muscled 19 fours and four sixes to score 142. Hussey was eventually dismissed by Adam Zampa, who collected three scalps, but half-centuries from Wade (83) and Daniel Christian (57) lifted the team beyond 500.
South Australia failed to gather any momentum in their innings, as Siddle (4 for 29) dealt early blows to reduce them to 4 for 45. Travis Head and Jake Lehmann - Australian coach Darren Lehman's son - briefly stopped the slide with a 77-run stand, but Head's dismissal towards the end of the day meant South Australia were precariously placed at 5 for 134 at stumps.
