Ferguson, 32, made his first-class debut in October 16-19 2004 against Victoria at Adelaide Oval, the same opposition he will be facing tomorrow in Melbourne.

His maiden first-class century was a score of 103 against New South Wales, putting on a fighting 218 for the fourth wicket with Tom Plant as the Redbacks fell to an innings defeat after first being bowled out for 29.

Ferguson’s highest first-class score is 213 against Tasmania in 2015, putting on a 378-run partnership with Jake Lehmann as the Redbacks won by 302 runs.

He joins an exclusive club of South Australian players to have reached the milestone, 27 behind the most-capped, Peter Sleep:
