South Australia Won 293 and 212 (McSwiney 100, Nisbet 5-53) New South Wales 183 and 136 (McAndrew 5-19, Conway 4-43), a difference of 186 points.

Nathan McAndrew and Nathan McSweeney powered South Australia to a commanding 186-run win that extended NSW’s winless streak in the Sheffield Shield.

McAndrew produced the most dominant individual bowling performance in the competition so far this season, taking two five-wicket hauls including 5 for 19 in the second innings that restricted the Blues to totals of 183 and 136 at Adelaide Oval. It was the first time the New South Wales-born pacer, 30, had taken 10 wickets in a first-class match.

It was not enough to pick up the man of the match award as McSweeney was rewarded for his impressive batting display, making 64 and 100 in a low-scoring match where only three players passed 50. The next highest score of the match was just 58 from Daniel Hughes. No other South Australian batsman exceeded 33 in either innings.

McAndrew started the final day with nine wickets to his name already in the match after he broke through for the Blues late in the third day, taking 4 for 19, as the visitors fell to 99 for 6 chasing 323 runs for a fourth-innings victory.

But there was a chance that his 10th wicket would not reach him. Curiously, he was not used by captain Jake Lehmann in the first seven overs of the day as Blues duo Jack Edwards and Jack Nisbet added 25 runs for the seventh wicket before Conway broke through.

McAndrew was called on at the other end and bowled first but Conway added another wicket to his tally in the next over as Edwards pulled one straight down the fine leg stump. McAndrew bowled another maiden before Conway removed Chris Tremaine to take the fourth wicket of the innings and leave New South Wales nine down.

But McAndrew was able to get the 10th over with Jackson Bird caught in the groove as the Blues were bowled out for 136.
