Tom Cooper‘s second century of the Sheffield Shield season delivered a six-wicket victory to South Australia in their match against Queensland at Adelaide Oval. Set 279 to win what had been a low-scoring game, South Australia had wobbled to 4 for 92 before a match-winning partnership between Cooper and Jake Lehmann saw them home.

The pair put on an unbeaten 187 for the fifth wicket, having come together on the third afternoon. Lehmann finished on 78 not out and Cooper – South Australia’s leading run scorer this Shield season – was unbeaten on 119. Adam Zampa was named Man of the Match for his maiden 10-wicket haul in first-class cricket.
