Summary

  • Travis Head opened the innings against Middlesex at Lords on Saturday and carved out 106 off 141 balls to follow Marcus Stoinis who was rested for the game following his the triple-figure effort at Hove on Thursday which helped Australia reach 277.
  • Shaun Marsh, in for his first game of the tour, made 49 but Glenn Maxwell made only three, having scored just one against Sussex two days prior, and Australia’s total of 6-283 left lots of room for improvement.
  • D’Arcy Short has filled the opening slot in the two games in England so far and his 18 at Lords, off just 12 balls, could have been much more if not for a brilliant catch at mid-wicket by Nick Sowter.
  • Part-time spinner Max Holden, who is only 20 and playing just his second season of county cricket, went for just 29 runs in his 10-over spell bowled and bowling in tandem with left-armer Ravi Patel, conceded just 17 runs in a six overs early in the Aussie innings.
