Victoria gain ascendancy after dominant day

Victoria 322 and 1 for 149 (Stoinis 86*, Quiney 62*) lead Western Australia 186 (Bosisto 33, Tremain 4-48) by 285 runs

Victoria enjoyed a thoroughly dominant second day as they gained the ascendancy against Western Australia in Perth. Victoria first dismissed the hosts for 186, to take a 136-run first-innings lead, and then added 149 in the second innings for the loss of Travis Dean.

The Western Australia openers, Cameron Bancroft and Will Bosisto, started well and even put up a 54-run stand before the wicket of Bancroft triggered a match-turning collapse as they were quickly reduced to 88 for 5.

Sam Whiteman and Ashton Agar offered brief resistance with a 48-run stand, but another clump of wickets meant Western Australia were staring at a huge deficit. Michael Hogan, batting at no. 11, struck four boundaries in his nine-ball stay but Victoria needed only 68 overs to bowl out the opposition for 186. Chris Tremain was the pick of the bowlers, with figures of 4 for 48.

Western Australia responded in positive fashion as Joel Paris had Dean caught off the first ball of the second innings, but Rob Quiney and Marcus Stoinis played out the rest of the day without further loss. Stoinis went on to hit his second fifty of the game and remained unbeaten on 86 off 113 balls while Quiney was more patient, scoring 62 off 102 balls.
