On a day of potentially match-turning umpiring and technical howlers, a 19-year-old Australian spinner on debut, namely Ashton Agar, produced a record-breaking show with the bat to help his team hold a slight edge in the first Test of The Ashes 2013.
Coming in to bat at No 11 with his team reeling on 117 for nine, 98 runs behind England’s rather average first innings total, Agar scored exactly those many runs and took his team 65 ahead before holing out to deep mid-wicket.

England skipper Alastair Cook and his talismanic soldier Kevin Pietersen won the last session for the hosts as they shared an unbeaten 69-run partnership to give their side a slender lead at stumps. As far as sessions go, both teams have won two each and shared the remaining two going into Day Three, which should decide the fate of this Test match.
