Melbourne: Brad Hodge scored his second century in as many innings as Victoria hit batting form on Thursday on the opening day of its Sheffield Shield match against Western Australia (WA).

Hodge became the season's second-highest scorer behind Queenslander Jimmy Maher and reached 5000 domestic first-class runs in his career with his 100 brought up on the third-last ball of the day. He joined Jon Moss in a 120-run stand for the third wicket, stabilising the innings and taking Victoria to 313 for two at stumps. Former Test opener Matthew Elliott made 88 and put on a 145-run opening stand with Matthew Mott, who reached 84 after being recalled for injured batsman Jason Arnberger. Western Australia went into the match on 18 points, two behind second-placed South Australia (SA) and needing at least first-innings points as it vies for a berth in next month's Shield final.
