Record-breaking day in cricket as Green leads recall bid, Blues dominate Tassie, and Vics triumph over SA

Cameron Green has stated his case for a recall to the Australian Test team with a brilliant innings of 96 for Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield. The 24-year-old, who has been focusing on red-ball cricket after sitting out the BBL season, played a masterful innings that included 15 boundaries and a six. Green’s performance, along with a 170-run partnership with Hilton Cartwright, helped Western Australia reach 330 all out in response to Queensland’s first innings total of 274.

Australia’s chairman of selectors George Bailey hinted at the possibility of playing Green alongside Mitchell Marsh once David Warner retires. There were earlier speculations about Cameron Bancroft, Matt Renshaw, or Marcus Harris replacing Warner, but Bailey suggested that Marnus Labuschagne could be moved up to open, allowing Green and Marsh to bat in the same order.

In another match, NSW secured a win over ladder-leaders Tasmania after 24 wickets fell in a day. After securing a 56-run first-innings lead, NSW bowled out Tasmania for 68, securing their second win of the season.

In Adelaide, Victoria is on the verge of victory against South Australia after reducing the hosts to 49 for 3 in their chase of 258. Fergus O’Neill picked up three crucial wickets for Victoria to put them in a strong position to win the match.
