Usman Khawaja becomes only second Australian batter to bat on all five days in a Test

Usman Khawaja has become just the second Australian batter to bat on all five days of a Test match. In addition, he has also become the 13th batter to bat on all five days of the Test match. Former batter Kim Hughes remains the only other Australian to do so. He batted on all five days during the Lord’s Test of the 1980 Ashes. Hughes scored 117 and 84 respectively in the two innings of the only test at Lord.

Khawaja showed the strength of character during his 141-run knock in the 1st innings. It was his 15th Test hundred as he showed courage and determination during the second and third day’s play. This is also his fourth Test hundred against England but his first on English soil. Khawaja smashed 14 fours and 3 sixes in his knock. Khawaja made a surprise comeback to Australia’s Test team in January last year.
