South Australia 0 for 7 (Harris 4*) trail Queensland 347 (Burns 140, Richardson 4-79) by 340 runs
Kane Richardson and Joe Burns put on sterling performances on debut to ensure their sides were on equal footing after the first day. Richardson, who was Man of the Match in the Ryobi One Day Cup against Queensland last week, took a wicket in each of his first three overs to carve up the Queenland top order.
Burns' maiden innings came sooner than he may have expected with the score on 3 for 11 in the eighth over. He combined with the experienced James Hopes to post a fourth-wicket partnership of 149. Hopes clipped a ball back onto his stumps after lunch to depart eight runs short of a century but Burns was unmoved and batted through the rest of the innings. He enjoyed a 52-run stand with another debutant, Jason Floros, and shared an eighth-wicket stand of 51 with Chris Swan, whose run-a-ball 37 took Queensland past the 300 mark.
Richardson removed Swan to claim his fourth wicket of the innings, with Christian taking the catch at second slip. Christian then added a run-out to his two wickets to end the Queensland innings.
South Australia will resume on 7 without loss on day two.
