Bancroft scores a ton

After being sent in by Victoria, Cameron Bancroft has lead the way for WA on day one of their Shield Clash bringing up his third Sheffield Shield ton of the summer.

As we have come to expect, resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction has penned a Haiku poem to celebrate his work.

Patience and application

Batting like a pro

WA recovered from being 5-114 to finish day one at 6-291 with Josh Inglis not out 88 and Joel Paris finishing on 46 when stumps were called.
