Ashes: England bowlers and openers impress in Adelaide
Tour match, Adelaide (stumps, day two of three) England 288-8d & 94-0 v South Australia 221 Match scorecard
Anderson (second from right) bowled impressively early on day two
England's four bowlers and their opening batsmen all impressed on day two of the second Ashes warm-up match against South Australia in Adelaide.
The hosts resumed 262 behind on 26-0 but never threatened to get close to England's total on a gloomy, overcast day which helped the seam bowlers.
Stuart Broad struck first, before James Anderson (3-62), Steven Finn (2-47) and Graeme Swann (4-68) got stuck in.
SA were all out for 221, before England reached 94-0 in their second innings.
And it came as further encouragement to the tourists that despite the difficult conditions Alastair Cook was able to get to stumps unscathed on 37, even though he was somewhat eclipsed by an authoritative 56 by skipper Andrew Strauss that featured three sixes.
Cook had his role questioned by former Australia captain Ian Chappell on Thursday and has not had a good year generally, but will have every chance to reach his first half-century of the tour on Saturday.
He was beginning to show some much-improved footwork when an extended final session came to a close.
The performance of England's first-choice bowling quartet earlier in the day may ensure they are rewarded with a trip straight to Queensland after this match to prepare for the first Test on 25 November.
They would thus avoid the final warm-up in chilly Tasmania and be able to spend longer acclimatising to the sub-tropical conditions they can expect in Brisbane.
Cook will look to build on his unbeaten 37 on Saturday
And Anderson appeared to approve of that plan, saying: "I think I'd be fine going into that Test without playing at Hobart. It gives us a nice break going into that first Test.
"I've bowled some reasonably long spells in the last couple of games, so I've got some decent overs under my belt."
SA openers James Smith and Daniel Harris had to contend with heavy cloud cover and fresh bowlers when play began after a delayed start.
England were soon in business when Broad removed Smith, driving and edging a ball that swung away a fraction, before Anderson quickly sent Harris on his way, the batsman hitting a leg-stump half-volley straight to Jonathan Trott at square-leg.
Captain Michael Klinger and Ashes hopeful Callum Ferguson had to rebuild, and Ferguson, a success in the one-day series in England 14 months ago before injury hit, played positively, if a little loosely.
Staying slightly leg-side to England's pace, he got away with aerial fours either side of gully off Anderson and then Broad, and continued to attack.
