Test hopeful Steve Smith continued to mount a strong case for Ashes selection as NSW moved in on outright victory over South Australia at the SCG, collecting two wickets late on day three to take his tally to six for the game.

With the Australian team for the third Test in Perth to be announced Friday afternoon, Smith ensured his name would be at the forefront of selectors’ minds with another impressive performance.

After taking 4-57 in the first innings, the leg spinner again bowled with great control and variation, troubling all the batsmen and picking up the wickets of Tom Cooper (41) and Aiden Blizzard (3).

He boasted the handy figures of 2-64 when bad light stopped play at 6.09pm local time with the visitors 4-178 in their second innings.
