England Under-19s 172 and 0 for 38 trail Australia Under-19s 7 for 455 (Doran 169, Heazlett 160, Healy 66) by 245 runs

Centuries from Sam Heazlett and Jake Doran and the 218-run, fourth-wicket partnership between the two helped Australia Under-19s post a strong 7 for 455 and establish a 283-run first-innings lead over England Under-19s on the second day of the Youth Test in Perth.

The pair had come together at the crease on the first evening after Australia were 3 for 85. They went on to consolidate the team's position and brought up individual landmarks along the way. Heazlett, who had already scored 68 of his side's 103 runs on the first day, hit 22 fours and a six in his 218-ball 160. Once he was dismissed in the 79th over, Doran went on to add another 138 runs with wicketkeeper Tom Healy, son of former wicketkeeper Ian Healy. The partnership was broken by offspinner Brad Taylor who dismissed both batsmen in successive overs before Australia declared at 7 for 455. Doran scored 169 off 252 deliveries with 19 fours and a six.

England's openers then added 38 runs in a unbroken stand before close of play.
