Sheffield Shield 2019, Ashes 2019 scout, Kurtis Patterson century

Centuries to Ashes squad aspirant Kurtis Patterson and former Test wicketkeeper Peter Nevill have put New South Wales in a commanding position after day three of their Sheffield Shield match against Western Australia at Bankstown Oval.

Western Australia were 1-13 at the close of play, trailing NSW by 185 runs. The home side posted a massive first-innings lead of 198 after declaring on 8-477.

The in-form Patterson led the way with a commanding 134 from a 229-ball innings, which included 15 fours and two sixes.

It followed Patterson’s recent Test century against Sri Lanka in just his second outing in the baggy green.

After resuming on 57, Patterson, along with Jason Sangha (36), continued cautiously during a morning session which produced only 59 runs. The second-placed Blues picked up momentum as the day wore on, highlighted by a stylish 101 not out from Nevill.
