Another Sheffield Shield clash, another day of mixed fortunes for those hoping to break into Australia’s ailing Test set-up.

With spots surely up for grabs going into next week’s third Ashes Test in Perth, those aiming to impress in the match between NSW and South Australia at the SCG on Tuesday mostly fluffed their lines.

Redbacks batsman Callum Ferguson (14) was the first to fall in a calamitous collapse for the visitors, who lost 7-21 around the tea break on their way to being dismissed for just 188 after winning the toss and batting on a flat pitch.

Ferguson wafted at a wide delivery from Moises Henriques (4-13) as he and fellow all-rounder Steven Smith (4-57) tore through the Redbacks to take them from 2-133 to 9-154 in the middle of the day.

Ian Bell hit a majestic 192 before England were all out for 523 on day three of the final warm-up match ahead of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane.

Bell, 121 overnight, batted for six hours in all before Australia A reached 128-3 in their second innings, still trailing by 165 with a day to go.

Tim Bresnan, who hit 36 in a stand of 80 with Bell for the ninth wicket, first removed Ed Cowan for 33.

He then got rid of Test hopefuls Usman Khawaja (0) and Callum Ferguson (10).
