Anderson ripped through the Australian tail in the first hour of Day 2 and Agar game to the wicket at 117-9. The 19 year old debutant showed both sides exactly how to bat on the surface and hit a record 98 for a debutant at No.11.
Absolutely insane. For the record, he was incorrectly given Not Out by the third umpire for a stumping chance off the bowling of Swann. Had that been the case, England would have gone into the second innings with a lead of around 90 but instead they were chasing a deficit of 60odd instead.
You win some, you lose some. Agar should rightly take all the plaudits. It was a stunning innings. I hate to admit it but I felt gutted for him when he fell two short of what would have been a debut century. Fair play to the lad, he's got a very big future in the game and one thing is for sure...we all know who he is now and he certainly wont bat at No.11 ever again.
