Here’s some 1st Test highlights:

We've just seen one of the greatest rarities in Ashes cricket

Sam Robson has been playing in England for 6 -7 years. It is not as if he has just parachuted in and suddenly been picked. He was not really given much of a look in by selectors in Australia so I say good luck to him. It was tremendous that he scored a century last Test and that his brother, Angus, then scored a ton against India the next Saturday – both in front of a very proud mum and dad. Sam and Angus have worked hard and taken their opportunities.

Is picking from your own really that difficult?

Thanks very much James P. If you click on my name you will get access to some other cricket history pieces that I have done for The Roar. See what you think.

Rogers: second oldest behind Arthur who?

Sheek,
Thanks for that interesting follow up. Monty Noble labelled Kippax’s exclusion from 1926 in favour of Richardson as “a crime against the youth of Australia.” Kippax was hard done by certainly but Richardson’s 100 at Leeds justified his selection.
