Playing his debut Test match, a 19-year old Ashton Agar surprised everyone by playing one of the finest innings by a bowler. What makes the innings even more special is the fact that it came against their arch-rivals England, during the 2013 Ashes series. Coming in to bat at number eleven, the left-handed batsman went into record books by scoring 98 runs- the highest score by a number 11 batsman. When he came to bat, Australia were reeling at 117 for 9 but a 163 runs partnership with Phillip Hughes saw them scoring 280. The incredible knock came off just 101 deliveries and was studded with 12 fours and 2 maximums.
