Rory 'Burns' Australia to Ashes

Aug 03, 2019 17:29 IST

It was an Ashes debut that opener Rory Burns will remember for the rest of his life. Playing only his 8th Test, the southpaw tamed the Aussies with his maiden Test hundred, to put England in the driver's seat in the 1st Ashes Test at Edgbaston. Burns anchored a wobbly England batting order, and became the first English opener to bat through a day, in a home Test in over 6 years. England's hero was finally dismissed for 133 on the 3rd day, but his knock made sure that the 3 Lions went past Australia's 1st innings total.
