PERTH, Oct 22 AAP - All-rounder Kade Harvey today demolished the England bowling attack, leading the Australian Cricket Board Chairman's XI to 7-301 off 50 overs in a one-day tour match at Lilac Hill.

With temperatures topping 30 degrees celsius, the West Australian put paid to the tourists' bowling attack, smashing 114 off just 88 balls,

He and captain Michael Hussey (69) put on 152 runs for the sixth wicket to set up the hefty total for the visitors.

Harvey hit 10 fours and six sixes in his 97-minute knock.

The tourists started poorly with quick Matthew Hoggard opening the match with two wides.

Young quick Stephen Harmison set an early scare through the England camp after appearing to injure his knee trying to stop a four in the second over.

He left the field but returned just two overs later only to bowl 16 wides for the innings.

Left-handed West Australian opening pair Chris Rogers and Marcus North had a 57-run opening partnership before Hoggard had North (22) out lofting a simple catch to England captain Nasser Hussain at cover.

Just 12 runs later, Glamorgan speedster Simon Jones made an instant impact with his first ball of the tour, forcing Rogers (30) to prod a simple catch to John Crawley at gully.

England spinner Ashley Giles then put the brakes on the innings with three wickets as the home team slumped to 5-122.

Giles picked up Ryan Campbell (14) and Brad Hogg (0) in the one over before having former Test batsman David Hookes caught on the boundary after the Victorian coach had hit him for six in the same over.

Hussey and Harvey resurrected the innings before Hussey became Jones' second victim.

After bringing up the 300 for the invitation team, Harvey was caught on the boundary by Marcus Trescothick.
