Queensland (264 &6/150) defeated South Australia (221 & 192) by four wickets.
The West End Redbacks fourth round Marsh Sheffield Shield clash with Queensland is set to be one for the history books. Beginning Sunday, November 8 at ACH Group Stadium (Glenelg Oval), the fixture marks Callum Ferguson's final appearance in the baggy red cap of South Australian first-class cricket.
Second on the all-time list of games played for the Redbacks, Ferguson is a true great of the game, having devoted the best part of two decades to the cause. Entry is free, so for any fans wanting to catch one last glimpse of the silky-smooth batsman in action, this is the chance.
Those believing in fairy-tale finishes will have plenty to cheer for this week, as Ferguson is a single century away from moving up to fifth in the all-time list of ton-makers South Australia. Three figures would also see the 35-year-old move to fourth place in the all-time run scorers list for the Redbacks, where he currently sits just 59 runs behind Les Favell.
For South Australia, there is one change from the squad that took on Victoria, with Jake Lehmann making his way into the squad at the expense of Brad Davis. Queensland are coming off a last-gasp, one wicket defeat to Tasmania in their most recent outing, while the Redbacks secured a stoic draw against Victoria thanks to several strong performances with the bat in the second innings.
Queensland have two matches under their belt this season, tasting both victory and defeat to begin their campaign. Match-winners are strewn throughout their line-up; with the likes of Mitch Swepson coming off a 10-wicket performance against NSW, Marnus Labuschagne who currently averages 94.6 this season and Michael Nesser, man-of-the-match from Queensland's opening round triumph over Tasmania.
Up to 1000 fans will be permitted in attendance, with contact tracing upon arrival, and are asked to enter through the Cornes Gates. Car parking will be available on the surrounding streets.
The game will also be broadcast live on Kayo Sports and via the cricket.com.au Match Centre.
