Andrew McDonald survived a startling attack for VICTORIA:

With national selector David Boon watching on from the stands, McDonald scored163 off 116 balls to facilitate Victoria towards the first innings score total of 529.This was keenly monitored by national selector David Boon on from stands.

By that, WA was into immense difficulty at 4 for 108 during the second day.Claim was appealed by Pattinson, 3 for 8 during an overwhelming second spell prior to Luke Pomersbach who was 24 not out and Mitch Marsh was 11 not out , ensured that there would be no loss for the day.

Before, McDonald scored 21 fours and 7 sixes during a stunning 128-minute knock, along with Aaron Finch who scored 84 for a 219-run at the fourth-wicket stand.

McDonald played his last of four Tests in the month of March during last year; even they are still under contract with Australia.

Although Marcus North's scored century against India and talented youngsters are emerging such as Callum Ferguson, Steve Smith, Phillip Hughes, etc have outwardly pushed McDonald down in the order.McDonald insisted that he was on the 25 contracted Cricket Australia contracts so that he always means they are probably in their view for the next 12 months, so he will take that,He also felt it’s nice to be in the selectors' mind but he is primarily trying to win games for Victoria.

His day was started with overnight score of 9 and he looked good early as he reached his half-century in 60 balls.

That was really just a Tough one of what was to come.McDonald gradually scored 50 to 150 in a matter of 49 balls to get his seventh first-class century.

Victoria has lost its last 7 wickets for 98, by then the damage was already been done, with Nick Jewell's 74 on day one and their contribution from Matthew Wade scored 44 and David Hussey who scored 43, really lifted Bushrangers for their terrifying total.
