But Bancroft ’s push to make his Test debut in Brisbane, either as an opener or batting at number six, cannot be ignored after he notched up his double ton for Harris stays in the Ashes selection frame.

Cameron Bancroft has 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.

Bancroft scored an unbeaten 228 to lift WA 7(dec)-514.

In reply, the Redbacks were 2-137 at tea on day two, with Jake Weatherald (75 off 98 balls) and Travis Head (14) the unbeaten batsmen.

Bancroft had 161 runs to his name by the end of play on Monday.

And he reached his double century shortly before lunch on day two after taking spinner Travis Head to the cleaners with a series of boundaries.

  Cartwright vows to bounce back from pair WA's Hilton Cartwright knows he needs to post a big score against South Australia next week if he is to be picked as Australia's No.6 batsman for the Ashes.Cartwright appeared to be the frontrunner for the vacant No.6 position in the Test team until he recorded a pair of ducks while batting for WA in the recent Sheffield Shield loss to NSW.

But Bancroft 's push to make his Test debut in Brisbane, either as an opener or batting at number six, cannot be ignored after he notched up his double ton for the Warriors against South Australia on day two of their Shield match at the WACA ground.

Test selector Greg Chappell was on hand to watch Bancroft's latest knock.

Bancroft's 513-minute, 351-ball innings featured 22 fours and three sixes.

The right-hander can open, bat at No.6, or become Australia's wicketkeeper-batsman.

Current Test opener Matt Renshaw is under pressure following his latest double failure with the bat.

Renshaw hasn't made it past 20 in his past nine innings - a worrying form slump that has cast his Ashes hopes in doubt.

In Queensland's current clash with NSW, Renshaw made just 16 and one against a depleted Blues bowling attack.

South Australian Joe Mennie produced the most embarrassing moment of Tuesday's morning session in Perth.

Mennie moved across well to catch Andrew Holder just inside the boundary line.

But Mennie, while basking in the moment of the catch, took a couple of steadying steps backwards and stepped over the boundary rope, gifting Holder a six.

Weatherald's 98-ball knock has featured 15 boundaries.

But he was involved in a bad mix-up that resulted in Callum Ferguson being run-out for 33.
