Katich hits back at snub with 220 runs

Simon Katich responded to his dumping from Cricket Australia's contracted player list by smashing an unbeaten 220 for English county side Derbyshire.

At stumps on day one of their LV County Championship Division Two match at Somerset, Derbyshire was 4-448 after losing the wickets of Phil Weston and Chris Taylor in the first over.

Left-hander Katich, the Derbyshire captain, hit 32 fours and two sixes in his first county double century.

The Derbyshire captain shared an unbroken partnership of 241 with fellow Australian Ian Harvey, who hit 20 fours on his way to 123 not out.

Katich's performance came a day after he was culled from Cricket Australia's list of 25 players contracted for the 2007/08 season.

The 31-year-old has played 23 Tests and 45 one-day internationals.

His last Test was in November 2005.
