Ban­croft in smash­ing dis­play

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

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.
