Derby: Shaun Marsh scored his second hundred in as many tour matches as Australia made 413 for nine on the first day of three against Derbyshire at Derby yesterday.
But skipper Michael Clarke’s quest for lengthy time in the middle was cut short when he fell for 16 to 19-year-old paceman Will Davis.
Marsh, who is in line to replace Chris Rogers should the veteran opener be ruled out of next week’s third Test at Edgbaston, made 101 before retiring out as did fellow opener David Warner.
Davis and fellow Derbyshire debutant Harry White shared five wickets in their maiden first-class innings.
The 19-year-old Davis led the attack with three for 63, dismissing both Adam Voges and Peter Nevill for one.
Meanwhile 20-year-old Derby-born left-arm paceman White had two for 85 from 19 overs.
Warner, who made 83 in the second innings at Lord’s, was rarely troubled after Clarke won the toss.
Australia included both Brad Haddin and fellow wicket-keeper Nevill in the XI to play Derbyshire.
First-choice gloveman Haddin didn’t play at Lord’s after withdrawing because of “family reasons”, with Nevill impressing on his Test debut.
Both players are set to share wicket-keeping duties in this match ahead of the third Test, which starts on July 29.
