Behrendorff gives Western Australia control

Western Australia 1 for 36 and 211 lead South Australia 191 (Behrendorff 4-55, Hogan 3-38) by 56 runs
Scorecard

Western Australia recovered from a mediocre first innings to roll South Australia for 191 and take control of proceedings on day two of the Sheffield Shield match at Adelaide Oval.

The Redbacks were never able to get into a rhythm, with a 52-run stand between Callum Ferguson and Tom Cooper the most substantial partnership of the innings.

Jason Behrendorff and Michael Hogan shared the majority of the wickets for the visitors, who ensured that two days of the match went by without a single batsman on either side passing 50.

The Warriors fared somewhat better second time around, seeing off the new ball spells of Chadd Sayers and Joe Mennie, before Kane Richardson bowled Marcus Harris a little less than four overs before stumps.

Even so, WA are now well placed to push for an outright result with a lead of 56 and nine wickets in hand.
