A Report from ESPNcricket staff

Travis Dean completed the most memorable of debuts to guide Victoria to a first-up Sheffield Shield victory over Queensland with his second century of the day-night match. Only Arthur Morris among Australians had made a hundred in each innings of his state debut, in a non-Shield fixture during the Second World War, and only six batsmen had done the trick in all first-class matches.

Dean’s performance was bettered by the fact he was on the field for every minute of the match, making 154 not out in the first innings then finishing unbeaten on 109 as the Bushrangers eased past a fourth-innings target of 229.

Over the past 12 months, Dean has been a dominant figure in second XI matches, amassing scores of 217*, 116 and 187* in his three most recent games before his Shield call-up. Many in Australian cricket will be hoping to see him maintain that sort o
