Lehmann eyes ton but Queensland on top
South Australia 5 for 252 (Lehmann 92*, Raphael 65, Ludeman 26*, Swepson 3-64) trail Queensland 6 for 474 dec (Renshaw 146, Wildermuth 100*, Heazlett 75, Andrews 3-106) by 222 runs
Jake Lehmann was within sight of a second first-class century at stumps on the second day at Adelaide Oval, but South Australia still had plenty of work ahead of them after Queensland posted an imposing 6 for 474 in their first innings. At the close of play Lehmann was on 92 and Tim Ludeman was on 26, with the Redbacks at 5 for 252.
Queensland legspinner Mitch Swepson had picked up 3 for 64 after veteran James Hopes struck in the first over of the South Australia innings, and Charlie Hemphrey was also credited with a wicket when Sam Raphael (65) stepped back onto the stumps off his bowling. But Lehmann was the key man for the Redbacks and had a strong chance of scoring his second ton in a five-game career.
The Bulls had started the day on 5 for 357 and Jack Wildermuth, playing his sixth first-class match, registered his maiden century before Chris Hartley declared with him on exactly 100. Hartley had been the only Queensland batsman to lose his wicket on the second day, one of three victims in total for South Australia spinner Tom Andrews.
