Melbourne: Australian first-class cricketer Travis Dean scripted history by becoming the first player to score two unbeaten centuries on debut in Sheffield Shield's 123-year cricketing history.

The 23-year-old remained not out on 109 to add to his first innings unbeaten knock of 154 as Victoria Bushrangers eased to a stunning nine-wicket win over Queensland at the MCG with nine wickets and one session of play to spare, News.com.au reported.

Dean was picked ahead of limited-overs specialist and World Cup winner Aaron Finch for the opening round of the Sheffield Shield season.
