Western Australia Chairman's XI vs. England XI: Scorecard and Daily Recaps

England are taking on a Western Australia Chairman's XI in Perth over the next three days, in what is the first match of their Ashes tour, ahead of next month's first Test match.

With Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann all sitting out the encounter, a number of those not necessarily expecting to begin the first Test with Australia will have the opportunity to state their case over the coming days.

On a batting-friendly pitch at the WACA, it should be a great opportunity for England's batsmen to stake a claim with big runs. For the team's bowling ranks, though, it could be considerably more difficult.

Follow all three days here on Bleacher Report, with a roundup of the action following each day's play.
