Ed Cowan exceeded expectations, I expected less than 10 maybe a duck, but got a golden duck.

Michael Clarke out for a duck as well from a magnificent inswinger from James Anderson.

Ashton Agar has broken his first world record: Highest score by a number 11 on debut.
Edit: Agar just broke another record: Highest score by an Australian number 11 ever. (formerly held by Glen McGrath) ooh ahh.
Edit: Another record: Biggest tenth wicket partnership for Australia against any team. Agar/Hughes
Edit: Biggest tenth wicket partnership by anyone against England.
AND Highest tenth wicket partnership by anyone in a test cricket.

And you're missing it!!!

Edit: Highest score ever by a number 11 against England.

Edit: Agar out on 98 after a barrage of bouncers from Broad.

Getting a bit sick of the "take it back reverse the decision" show. Just go back to the umpire's decision is final.

Australia lost this test by about 15 runs.

Is Stuart Broad a cheat?




Australia needs to get better at the Decision Review System (DRS). Good on you Peter for showing good sportsmanship.
