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.

Bancroft scores a ton

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.

For all of the latest news as we head into the business end of the season, make sure you tune in to the Cricket Library Weekly with Robbie Mackinlay and Matt Ellis.

Memory Lane – Ben Rohrer ton on debut

Ben Rohrer was a late inclusion in the NSW side at the back end of the 2006/7 season for the Sheffield Shield clash against Tasmania in Hobart. Unfortunately, NSW were rolled for 53 in their first innings but there was some personal satisfaction for Ben Rohrer in the second innings as he explained to the Cricket Library Podcast.

Tasmania went on to win the game with Michael Di Venuto claiming player of the match honours for his magnificent 181 in Tasmania’s first innings total of 370 All Out.
