Tasmania 94 for 1 trail South Australia 307 (Lehmann 115, Manenti 71, Bell 3-78) by 213 runs
South Australia were in morning trouble at Karen Rolton Oval on Tuesday after losing 4 for 19 in a horror nine-over stretch.
Openers Kelvin Smith and Henry Hunt put on 30 runs at a healthy clip before the tumble. Smith was superbly caught, high to his left, by first-class debutant Mitchell Owen at third slip.
Hunt feathered a glove to a leg-side short ball and the 22-year-old medium-pacer Owen, in his next over, bowled Nathan McSweeney, the Redback chopping on attempting an off-side leave.
The pair smacked 59 runs from seven overs – Fraser-McGurk’s 37 from 23 balls featured two sixes and five fours before skying to mid-on from spinner Jarrod Freeman before lunch.
Lehmann posted his half-century during a brisk seventh-wicket stand with the aggressive Manenti, who followed suit in reaching his milestone from 45 balls.
The pair put on 104 for the seventh wicket with Manenti’s rapid-fire 60-ball knock including 11 fours and two sixes.
Lehmann, with valuable tail-end support from Wes Agar and Brendan Doggett, continued to his 10th first-class ton – his 143-ball gem included 18 fours – and his second in consecutive Shield matches having finished last season with a century against New South Wales.
