Cameron Green sends message to Cricket Australia with century

Cameron Green has followed up his impressive Sheffield Shield century last week with another triple-figure score.

Australia’s incumbent number six for the Ashes blasted his was to 144 from 101 balls as Western Australia posted an imperious 5-369 at the WACA.

Shaun Marsh also transferred his fine form in red ball cricket over to the one-dayers, making 113 (110).

It’s the first hit-out for both sides in this edition of the Marsh Cup, in which each team will only play each other once before a grand final on April 11th.

Green’s century follows on from an unbeaten 163 last week in four-day cricket, and with minimal fixtures between now and the Ashes at the end of the year, any prolonged time in the middle will go a long way towards hopeful’s chances of being part of the Ashes.

Ironically, one of his chief rivals for those middle order national team spots was a victim as a bowler today. Travis Head, who Green played alongside in his debut Test earlier this summer, finished the day with 1-47 off five overs, which included Green hitting him for three consecutive sixes.

The winner of this match will join New South Wales and Queensland at the top of the ladder, who beat Victoria and Tasmania, respectively.
