Western Australia 4 for 244 (Towers 124, Voges 52) v Tasmania
The opener Luke Towers enjoyed a breakthrough innings with 124 as Western Australia controlled the opening day against Tasmania at Bellerive Oval. Western Australia's batting has been a problem again this season but Towers made sure it was in good shape today, beating his previous best of 49, to steer his team to 4 for 244.
Aged 21 and in his eighth first-class game, Towers showed maturity to hold the innings together after the Warriors were in some early discomfort at 2 for 65. The captain Adam Voges then chipped in with 52, combining in a 106-run stand with Towers, before falling to Brett Geeves.
Towers continued to build the total during a chanceless innings that included 16 fours and lasted 286 balls. It ended when he was caught behind off Luke Butterworth after the Tigers took the second new ball. Butterworth (2 for 43) was the most successful of the local bowlers, who kept the run-rate down to 2.54 an over.
