Bancroft in smashing display
CAMERON Bancroft made his case for an Ashes call-up almost irresistible after producing an unbeaten double century in Western Australia’s Sheffield Shield clash with South Australia at the WACA Ground.
But the news wasn’t so good for fellow Ashes hopeful Jake Lehmann, who made just 13 before being caught at slip.
Bancroft scored an unbeaten 228 to lift WA to a formidable 7 declared for 514 on a batter-friendly deck.
In reply, the Redbacks ended day two at 6-322, with Jake Weatherald (152 off 180 balls) the star of their innings.
