Green century helps WA defy odds and secure Shield draw

A maiden first class century by Cameron Green has helped Western Australia defy the odds and force an unlikely Sheffield Shield draw against Queensland at the Gabba.

The Bulls looked poised for a quick kill when they reduced the visitors to 7-53 in their second dig ahead of lunch on day four on Tuesday, still trailing the hosts by 26 runs overall.

However, lanky all-rounder Green – backing up from his impressive 87 not out in the first innings – again stood tall, striking an unbeaten 121 batting at No.9 as WA finished at 9-246 with an overall lead of 167.

First he shared a 115-run eighth wicket stand with nightwatchman Matthew Kelly (46) on Tuesday. Then he dug deep with ex-Test seamer Jhye Richardson (21), combining for a 52-run partnership.
