Usman Khawaja makes a phenomenal comeback

Digital Desk: Aussie cricketer Usman Khawaja made a phenomenal comeback to Test Cricket by scoring 137 in the first innings and followed it up with another century as Australia extended their dominance over England on Day 4 of the fourth Ashes Test.

The Australian left-hander was in commanding form, hammering the English bowlers all over Sydney on his way to his second Test century — and his tenth overall in the game’s longest format. With a strike rate of over 75, Khawaja’s knock was even more impressive.

Twitterati was all in praises of the Australian cricketer who hadn’t played a single Test match since the 2019 Ashes tour of England and made a phenomenal comeback in the match.

Khawaja came to bat with Australia in trouble,having lost their top three batsmen for just 68 runs — Marcus Harris, David Warner, and Marnus Labuschagne. Steve Smith also became out early in the Sydney Test, boosting England’s hopes of an unlikely comeback.

Usman Khawaja and youthful Cameron Green crushed England’s hopes with a superb partnership for the fifth wicket. Green hit a half-century as the pair put on a partnership of almost 150 runs. Australia was 258/4 in the second innings, leading by 380 runs. Green was batting on 67, and Khawaja was undefeated on 101.

England is playing for dignity after losing to the Ashes in the first three Tests. But, other than Jonny Bairstow’s brave century, the tourists haven’t had much luck in the Sydney Test. But not much has gone the way of the tourists in the Sydney Test, barring a gutsy hundred from Jonny Bairstow.
