South Australia bat out rain-affected draw with Queensland
Jake Lehmann made 102 in the first innings and Liam Scott took 5 for 46 but South Australia opted not to chase 253 off 50 overs on the final day
South Australia 9 for 244 dec (Lehmann 102) & 3 for 115 (Weatherald 60*) drew with Queensland 8 for 305 dec (Clayton 85, Peirson 65) & 191 (Truloff 64, Scott 5-46)
South Australia declined a potentially season-reviving run chase and settled for a draw in their penultimate-round Sheffield Shield match against Queensland in Brisbane.
Set a challenging 253 off 50 overs at the Gabba, SA rarely showed interest in chasing down the target and, despite needing a win to stay in touch on the Shield ladder, were 3-115 when the match was called to an early end after 37 overs.
Opener Jake Weatherald scored the bulk of the runs with a watchful 60 not out off 112 balls. SA were 38 off 11 overs when the second wicket fell - both scalps claimed by Xavier Bartlett (2-30). Opener and debutant captain Henry Hunt scored 15 at the top of the order and Jake Carder contributed 11 before the run-rate further slowed.
Earlier in the day, Queensland scored at 4.5 run per over in compiling a second innings score of 191. Sam Truloff top-scored with a quickfire 64, while young bowler Liam Scott picked up career-best figures (5-46).
SA only completed their first innings early on day four with Jake Lehmann hitting 102 in 9(d)-244.
