South Australia 293 (McSweeney 64, Tremain 4-57) and 57 for 3 leads new South Wales 183 (Gilkes 57, McAndrew 5-42) by 167 runs
McAndrew took 5 for 42 for South Australia as NSW were all out for 183 runs. The hosts struggled till stumps on the second day at the Adelaide Oval, scoring 57 for 3 in their second innings and taking a lead of 167 runs.
Born in Wollongong, McAndrew has represented Sydney Thunder in the BBL, but made his way up to the Sheffield Shield through New Zealand Cricket.
He joined South Australia in 2021-22 at the age of 28 and made light work of his former home state on Monday.
The 30-year-old was the first to have Daniel Hughes caught out while driving slip on 13, while Ben Manenti took a good catch down the ground.
He also bowled in-form Jack Edwards, ending the all-rounder’s fine start to the summer when he took a blow to the right-handed batsman’s off-stump.
These wickets marked McAndrew’s sixth five-wicket haul in first-class cricket, after taking 6 for 97 against the Blues late last summer.
NSW had some late success, after McAndrew had South Australia firmly established.
Henry Hunt was the second South Australian to fall, caught by Edwards for 7 as the Redbacks lost some of their grip on the game.
South Australia were defeated by Tasmania in their opening round match, while NSW drew with Queensland after being on top for the first three days.
