Cameron Green gave Western Australia the chance to establish its first front row entry against Tasmania at WACA.

Green, 19, triumphed over the 5-by-24 he took in the debut of Sheffield Shield, also against Tasmania, in February 2017.

Green took advantage of a good initial work of his teammates David Moody and Jhye Richardson after Tasmania won the draw and chose to hit on a lush grass surface. Richardson made the first major breakthrough of the day square with Jordan Silk as he moved toward the second slip. Green covered Beau Webster for the first time in his career, but it was Moody who tore the heart out of the Tasmanian middle order.

Moody claimed Jake Doran and George Bailey for consecutive deliveries before obtaining Alex Doolan's key scalp. The veteran starter backed his century against Queensland in the first round with an insurance 76 before taking Moody to the second slip.

He broke an association of 52 races between Doolan and Matthew Wade. Simon Milenko recovered and added 60 with Wade before Green cleared the line. Eliminated Milenko, Tom Rogers and Sam Rainbird in the space of four balls to leave the Tigers 8 for 184.

Wade felt a quick end and ran to 66 to not push the total to 226 before Green finished the two last. to finish with 6 by 30 in only 11.1 overs. It was Wade's third half-century in three innings of Shield so far this season and he was only fired once.

WA's promising hitter Josh Philippe was promoted again to open after scoring his first Shield century at No. 6 last week, but he fell cheap to Gabe Bell. Jonathan Wells worked hard for 27 before it ran out. Hilton Cartwright finished 28, not out on the stumps and Shaun Marsh went undefeated at 10.
