Ferguson, Lehmann dominate for South Australia

South Australia 3 for 441 (Lehmann 179*, Ferguson 176*) v Tasmania
Scorecard

Jake Lehmann, the son of Australia's coach Darren Lehmann, scored his maiden first-class century while Callum Ferguson made his 14th as South Australia dominated the first day against Tasmania in Hobart. On a high-scoring day the Redbacks went to stumps at 3 for 441, with Lehmann on 179 and Ferguson on 176, the team's runs having flowed at 4.59 an over.

Ferguson and Lehmann combined for a 342-run partnership that was still going at stumps; they had batted through the second and third sessions of the day. Ferguson will be aiming to have his name at the forefront of the national selectors' minds if they need to consider another Test batsman through the summer, while for Lehmann this was a breakthrough innings in his third first-class game.

It wasn't the outcome George Bailey was hoping for after he won the toss and chose to field. Andrew Fekete got rid of both the South Australia openers, Tom Cooper for 21 and Mark Cosgrove for 52, and Jackson Bird got rid of the South Australia captain Travis Head for a duck, but they were the only triumphs of the day for the home team.

  • Bird takes five but South Australia on top

    Jackson Bird's first five-wicket haul in 18 months might help him regain the attention of Australia's selectors, but it is unlikely to help Tasmania avoid defeat in their Sheffield Shield match against South Australia in Hobart

  • Sayers, Worrall bowl South Australia to win

    Chadd Sayers and Daniel Worrall picked up four wickets each as South Australia consigned Tasmania to their third loss from four Sheffield Shield matches this summer

  • Another ton for Dunk after Lehmann, Ferguson doubles

    Ben Dunk scored his third century of the Sheffield Shield season and George Bailey went to stumps within reach of his second as Tasmania fought an uphill battle on the second day against South Australia in Hobart

  • Ferguson, Lehmann dominate for South Australia
