Another feeble South Australian performance

Today, after being set a target of 385, SA folded embarassingly in its second innings for 104 to hand outright points to the Qld Bulls. The scorecard is here, and the Cricket Australia report here.

The margin of defeat (280 runs) and the short time needed for it to happen ( 3 days) are symptoms of major problems with the team, which on paper has a mix of experienced and younger players.

The batting is a particularly poor while the bowling, apart from Jason Gillespie (who had best ever match figures of 10/110) and Shaun Tait (who missed this game through injury) lacks penetration.

The Redbacks are now the chopping block of the first class competition. Even England have more backbone than they do.
