Cartwright vows to bounce back from pair

  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.

Time proved to be the enemy of Magellan Ashes hopefuls Matthew Wade and Glenn Maxwell as Tasmania set the foundations for a towering JLT Sheffield Shield win over Victoria. Full highlights of Bancroft 's epic double century.

Home. Home.

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.

Bancroft has now produced scores of 76no, 86, and 228no in his past three Shield innings, with his hot form firmly thrusting him into the selection frame for the Ashes opener at the Gabba, starting November 23.

Tim Paine tipped to be in Ashes Test squad

  Tim Paine tipped to be in Ashes Test squad Tim Paine, who struggled to get a game for Tasmania last summer, and would-be debutant Cameron Bancroft are expected to be named in Australia's Ashes squad.Tim Paine is expected to be confirmed as Australia's wildcard wicketkeeper for the Ashes opener, nine months after contemplating retirement and seven years after his most recent Test.

Matthew Renshaw's run of outs continues, as Cameron Bancroft 's tilt at snaring a spot in Australia's Ashes squad gains momentum with a brilliant double century in the Sheffield Shield.

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.
