Meanwhile, veteran Indian quick Umesh Yadav looks set to replace the injured Ishant Sharma at Adelaide tomorrow. Australian cricket often looked towards to the future to the detriment of the present during this period of time, and this went beyond the Test team. Australia’s jigsaw puzzle time was such that only Rogers, Haddin and Siddle would be in the same batting positions in the side which took back the Ashes. Hughes had been dropped before, and on each occasion it was possible to see it as a reasonable decision, even if the first one was contentious. Here […] ANTOINETTE MULLER picks out five points for … But Agar’s innings was priceless. The first Ashes Test dished up plenty of talking points. Remember Trent Bridge 2015? The highest innings total scored in ODIs came in the match between England and Australia in June 2018.Playing in the third ODI at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, the hosts posted a total of 481/6. Team scoring records Most runs in an innings. It was an unbalanced team, Nathan Lyon had been cast aside like yesterday’s newspaper, Stephen O’Keefe and Brad Haddin had been left behind in Australia, and both the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the Ashes that year looked as if they were gone. He again had a swing when he was close to a hundred. Haddin, the better wicketkeeper, rounded out the top seven. With that tenth-wicket partnership and a second tenth-wicket partnership between Haddin and Pattinson, Australia nearly stole that match, but James Anderson pulled it back just in time. The bowling was more than capable of breaking a big partnership, but the batsmen certainly weren’t capable of making a big partnership. Tasmania captain Matthew Wade felt his side made crucial errors on day one with the bat when they lost four wickets before stumps. ... to Trent Bridge 2015,” said Lyon. Clarke Liquid Gold met expectations in the first innings of Chennai and Hyderabad. The famous last ODI against the South Africa saw Australia set their highest innings total of 434/4 at Johannesburg. "Like Shaun (Marsh, who broke his arm on Thursday) I feel that sad for him that he's going to miss the World Cup semi-final. But what was even worse was the lowering standards, communication and team management. Green will be a “world class” allrounder and should occupy a middle order slot at Matthew Wade’s expense says Hughes. At Durham, Swann made Rogers sweat in the 90s – the Aussie scored his century, but Swann won the overall contest early on the third morning. Clarke was at four. After that match, Clarke told him to think of 150 as his hundred so he wouldn’t be as anxious around the milestones again. Agar did provide excitement. He and Smith on days one and two gave Australia their first real big partnership of the series between two specialist batsmen. Watson had batted in the all-rounder’s No.6 spot at Durham, and had shared an important partnership with Rogers in the first innings. The pressure had built on him at Old Trafford, until he tried to play a shot to break the deadlock to a ball that wasn’t there do that, and he fell short of a maiden Test ton, just as he had done in Mohali. Phillip Hughes struggled mightily, but considering how Usman Khawaja played Graeme Swann later that year, it would be a stretch to say he would have done much better, and his absence gave Hughes one more match to prove himself. He batted first drop in the first innings and was dismissed first ball, before being forced back down the order because of his back in the second innings. Some controversial, the rest curious. "Matthew Wade is coming up, he's in great form, he's had a great 12 or 18 months back home but he also just scored two hundreds (for Australia A) so he's in great nick. Ponting was a great leader of men, but there was more to it than that. When he was injured during that match to the extent that he couldn’t bowl, or only bowled when Australia were trying to prevent their enterprise being rewarded with a 4-nil defeat, he went back up to No.3 for The Oval, with James Faulkner being drafted in to play the back-up seamer role and Khawaja being dropped. Langer also said Stoinis has suffered a right side strain, after injuring his left side earlier in the tournament, with the Aussies to make a call on his availability to face England in the next 24-48 hours. Ponting didn’t covet the captaincy after he gave it up. On top is another England Test, against South Africa in Durban in 1927-28, which had a total of 1272 runs - and 13 half-centuries - but a highest individual score of 90, by Wally Hammond . "Mitch Marsh is going to come on standby for Marcus Stoinis just to see how he comes up … If they have to come in they'll be ready to step up.". Shane Warne on Sunday picked Matthew Wade and Marcus Harris as the opening pair for the first Test against India in the absence of regular opener David Warner and Will Pucovski. His demotion to three in the second innings at Delhi was because of an idea to get as many runs off the new ball as possible; his continued presence at three for the Trent Bridge Test was another story. The South Africans had a healthy allotment of stars and suited servants that could, for example, be consistently relied upon to bat for sufficiently long periods of time. Injuries kept him out for some time and he went on to play another seven Tests, in which he took one five-for, against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2001. Australia have already gone to the Australia A well this World Cup, calling up batsman Peter Handscomb for the injured Shaun Marsh, who broke his wrist in the nets after copping a nasty short ball from paceman Pat Cummins last week. Shane Watson, even though he was vice-captain and the next match at Mohali had been the scene of one of his rare Test hundreds, didn’t demand a spot in the team on his batting alone (he wasn’t bowling in India). This summer Wade was at first drop in all four of his Shield innings, returning scores of 83, 57*, ten and 59. This was the last really low point before Australia’s rise. Matt Wade is a big chance to open in the first Test against India, based on comments by Australian coach Justin Langer yesterday, as part of a strategy that wouldn’t be as strange as it first seems.

Australia spends much time between Ashes series looking to the future. After Swann also removed Haddin, the only actual Australian tail of the series was exposed against the second new ball. Abbott and Starc may have been a little gassed after their batting exploits so it was left to Trent Copeland to do the damage when Tasmania took to the crease. The two most similar players to that South African side were definitely Clarke and probably Ed Cowan. But Smith had dramatically improved in his time away from the Australian side, and was a natural middle-order player, which Australia sorely lacked.

Clarke was the one unquestioned star, while Cowan’s ability to graft meant it wasn’t surprising when he ended up being the best of the rest in India. Australia’s tailenders fought hard, as they always did, but they weren’t quite good enough to stop India from having enough time to win the Test. It wasn’t his greatest innings, but it was his greatest hundred as an Ashes captain, because it came when Australia really needed it.

Trent Bridge home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club.
