Tour game, Adelaide, day two

England closed day two of their tour match against South Australia with a healthy lead having dominated the second day's play in Adelaide.

After they had declared on the first day on 288 for eight in their first innings, England bowled South Australia out for 221 as Graeme Swann and James Anderson shared seven wickets.

Swann returned four for 68, removing the innings' top scorer Aiden Blizzard (49) as well as Tim Lang (8), Ben Edmondson (4) and Peter George (4).

Anderson removed opener Daniel Harris for ten, Michael Klinger for 38 and wicket-keeper Graham Manou without scoring.

Stuart Broad returned one for 41 and Steven Finn two for 47 as England's four-man attack served them well.

They then made a confident start to their second innings, reaching stumps on 94 without loss - 161 runs to the good - with Andrew Strauss unbeaten on 56 including three sixes and Alastair Cook on 37.
