SA chip away at WA total in Shield opener

Travis Head has made a promising start as he looked to push his case for a Test cricket recall, helping South Australia’s pursuit of a big Western Australian first-innings score in their Sheffield Shield clash.

© Matt Turner/AAP PHOTOS Travis Head is pushing his Test claims, unbeaten on 45 for SA against WA in Sheffield Shield.

Head finished day two at Adelaide’s Karen Rolton Oval on 45 not out off 82 balls, with SA on 2-164, still trailing by 301, after WA made 9(dec)-465.

The SA skipper and former WA player Jake Cardar (58no off 150) added an unbeaten partnership of 96 for the third wicket on a pitch offering little encouragement for the bowlers.

Carder, who was dropped at short cover on 24, notched his third first-class fifty and equalled his highest score.

Head, who lost his place in the Australian team after the 2020 Boxing Day Test against India, got his innings going with four boundaries across two overs from Cameron Green.

He thick-edged the first two to third man and then punished a couple of half-volleys from the Test allrounder.  

SA steadied after losing Jake Weatherald for three and Henry Hunt for 36 as WA paceman Joel Paris and Matthew Kelly each took a wicket.

Earlier on Saturday, Josh Phillipe (77) and Hilton Cartwright (69) increased their overnight fifth-wicket stand to 109, after WA resumed on 4-324.

Philippe, who smashed 137 off SA in a one-day game earlier in the week, struck 10 fours and two sixes in his enterprising 107-ball knock.

Cartwright finished with eight fours and three sixes.

Legspinner Lloyd Pope (4-92 off 15.2 overs) had Philippe, Cartwright, Kelly and Josh Inglis caught, with WA losing 4-29 either side of the lunch break.

Paceman Nathan McAndrew (3-71 off 31) didn’t pick up a wicket on Saturday, but again made the batters work for their runs in a strong Shield debut for SA.
