Ashton Agar Biography
Ashton Agar wrote his name in history when he smashed 98 on his Test debut at Trent Bridge — the highest Test score by a no. 11 batsman and helped add a Test record of 163 for the tenth wicket with Phil Hughes. The teenager won hearts with his fearless display with the willow. However, he couldn’t translate that into performances with his left-arm spin, which was supposed to be his primary job, and was dropped after the next Test.
Agar was a part of Australia’s under-19 side at the 2012 World Cup at Townsville. He made his First-Class debut for Victoria, but later moved to Western Australia for lack of opportunities. A few weeks down the line he travelled with the senior side to India. Agar is a part of the Western Australia side. In the Big Bash League, he has played for the Perth Scorchers.
