Agar continued in imperious fashion flaying the England attack to all parts of the ground.

Hughes and Agar soon became the highest ever tenth wicket partnership against England and it wasn’t long before they became the highest 10th wicket partnership in history of test match cricket beating 151 Brian Hastings and Richard Collinge for New Zealand.

And the record’s continued to fall as Agar’s innings (12 fours two six) became the highest for an 11th batsman in test cricket history.

Devastatingly Agar got out on 98, leathering a length ball from Broad straight to Swann and deepish extra cover.

The young man though didn’t seem too upset, taking off his helmet with a shrug and a smile, the 19-year-old can console himself with a raft of records that he’ll no doubt hang onto for some time to come.

Phil Hughes for his part batted superbly, nudging and nurdling his way to 100, before loosening his shoulders and hitting a few more boundaries.

Australia will be delighted to have turned 115-9 to a 65 run lead.

Darren Lehmann will send out his bowlers with the express instructions to match the performance of Agar with the ball.
