The 5-match Test series between England vs Australia (ENG vs AUS) is being played in England.

England had set a target of 281 runs in front of Australia and Kangaroos have scored 123 runs at the loss of 4 wickets. Meanwhile, Australian opener Usman Khawaja has created a history and has also become the third player to do so in the Ashes series.
Let us tell you that against England, Australian batsman Usman Khawaja has become the player to bat on all five days of the Test. However, earlier this feat happened in the year 1977 and Jeff Boycott batted on all five days of the Tretbridge Test. After this, in the year 2019, England batsman Rory Burns has batted on all five days of the Test match. At the same time, Usman Khwaja has also become third in this list.
Second player to do this for Australia in Test cricket
Significantly, in the history of Test cricket, Kim Hughes has batted for Australia on all five days. At the same time, Usman Khawaja has become the second batsman to bat on all five days in Tests for Australia. In fact, England batted first in this Test and declared the innings on the first day itself and Australia came into bat on the very first day and then batted till the second day. Then on the third day both Australia and England batted and then on the fourth day England were all out and the Kangaroos batted. While batting on the fifth day, Usman has made this record his name.
