Twenty-year-old batsman victory Will Pucovski announced his arrival to the Australian national cricket with an impressive double-century to punish Western Australia in the WACA terrain.

The 243 of 311 Pucovski balls was his second century in the Sheffield Shield, and he scored 188 against Queensland late last summer. The outstanding statistician Lawrie Colliver indicated that it was united to an elite company between the youngest players of the history to obtain a double century in the Sheffield Shield.

At 20 years and 257 days, he became the eighth youngest to reach the mark, only 106 days longer than Sir Donald Bradman and behind Clem Hill, Doug Walters, Darren Lehmann, Ricky Ponting, Paul Sheahan and Ian Chappell, all of whom conducted hundreds of tests for Australia.

Pucovski received good support from Matthew Short He made 80 at a 159-race stand for the fifth field. He was the second last to leave with a score of 9 for 503.

WA Allrounder Marcus Stoinis took 4 for 73 to follow his 80 with the bat in the first innings.

Chris Tremain continued with his carrier form last season, accumulating two first steps at the end of the afternoon when WA's superior order collapsed for the second day in a row. Stoinis and Josh Philippe survived to the stumps, but the Warriors will do well only for Victoria to return again.
