Henry Hunt puts up a good show last weekend

Henry Hunt continued to make a good showing in last weekend's round of national Sheffield Shield competition.

Hunt continued his consistent form for SA, with 36 runs from 88 balls on the famous playing surface of the WACA, with South Australia bowled out for 353 chasing Western Australia's 8/492d.

Hunt, who grew up in Grenfell and played plenty of cricket in the Cowra area, was among the better performers for the visiting side, who were led by captain-wicketkeeper Alex Carey's 143 and aided by a late extended cameo from bowler Chadd Sayers (47).

Hunt's wicket was claimed after he was caught behind by wicketkeeper Josh Inglis from the bowling of Marcus Stoinis.

At the time of print on day four, Western Australia were sitting on 6/149 in their second dig. Veteran Shaun Marsh was sitting on 83 not out while lower-order batsman and spinner Ashton Agar was on 18.
