Draw on the cards despite declaration

QUEENSLAND looks headed for a draw in its opening Sheffield Shield match against South Australia at the Adelaide Oval, despite a very sporting declaration by the Redbacks.

The home side declared 75 runs behind at 4-368 when Callum Ferguson reached 100 during the second session on day three. Queensland then lost opener Marnus Labuschagne for a duck and fellow newcomer Ben McDermott for two.
