Usman Khawaja‘Back to Test Cricket Dreams Go on, he smashed another ton In the ongoing fourth Ashes Test against England in Sydney. The left-hander hit 137 in the first inning and continued the momentum on Day 4 with a shining one hundred in the second.
Australians have hundreds in each ashes test:
- Warren Bardsley (Oval 1909)
- Arthur Morris (Adelaide 1947)
- Steve Waugh (Old Trafford 1997)
- Matthew Hayden (Gaba 2002)
- Steve Smith (Edgbaston 2019)
- Usman Khawaja (Sydney Cricket Ground 2022)
This is the longest tenth century of Khawaja.He has great support from the all-rounder Cameron Green, who scored 74 from the other end. The pair went on to form a 179-run dominant partnership for the fifth wicket to change the momentum in the hosts’ favour.
Khawaja unbeaten in 101 games before Australia captain Pat Cummins Declaring Australia’s second innings at 265/6 gave England a powerful 388 goal to win the Sydney Test.
