England avoid Ashes Whitewash 2021-2022

Unbelievable batting from @Uz_Khawaja and he entered into the epic club of two century in two innings test in the history of Test Cricket. Usman Khawaja scored his second century of the match to place Australia in a commanding position. The Pakistan-born Khawaja has been in imperious form in his comeback from a 30-month Test exile, hitting 137 in the first innings before adding an unbeaten 101 to break English hearts. His domineering 179-run partnership with youngster Cameron Green in the 4th Test. What a comeback for Khawaja!

England finish on 270-8, with Broad 8 not out off 36 balls – superb stuff – and Anderson 0 not out off six. The players of both sides bump fists and exchange smiles. Jonny Bairstow, in a blue singlet, runs out to claim a stump. He and Broad were England’s stars here, but the Player of the Match was undoubtedly Usman Khawaja, who was robbed of the victory his twin hundreds richly deserved.
