Teenage debutant Ashton Agar fell agonisingly short of becoming the first Test match No 11 to score a century but still helped give Australia the edge in their Ashes opener against England at Trent Bridge on Thursday.
Earlier it seemed England would have a commanding first innings lead as Australia collapsed to 117 for nine in reply to the Ashes-holders' first innings 215.
But 19-year-old Agar went on to make 98 — the highest score by any Test No 11, surpassing Tino Best's 95 for the West Indies against England at Edgbaston last year.
