Henry, Maxwell pummel tourists

CA Chairman's XI 4 for 390 (Henry 172*, Maxwell 91, Khawaja 56) v Sri Lankans
Scorecard

Scott Henry, the young New South Wales batsman, notably outshone the Test aspirants Usman Khawaja and Alex Doolan on a barren opening day's play for the Sri Lankan tourists against a Cricket Australia Chairman's XI in Canberra.

Batting first on a typically flat Manuka Oval surface, the hosts had little trouble advancing to 4 for 390 by the close, Henry batting out the entire day for an unbeaten 172, adding 123 with Khawaja and 125 with a brazen Glenn Maxwell.

Shaminda Eranga was the only visiting bowler to win any sort of tactical advantage on the day, returning an economical 1 for 22 from 13 overs while Rangana Herath, Nuwan Kulasekara and the vice-captain Angelo Mathews wee rested.

Marcus Harris hung around for an opening stand of 47 with Henry before slicing Eranga to backward point. Khawaja began slowly before gradually gathering momentum, and was playing fluently until he flicked Chanaka Welagedara to short midwicket.

Doolan was not at his best upon his arrival to the wicket, surviving a handful of appeals before he was bowled by an off break from Suraj Randiv for a mere six.

Maxwell spanked 11 boundaries and two sixes in his 77-ball stay, but was to fall short of a century when he charged at Nuwan Pradeep's fast medium and was bowled.
