Profile

Teenager became an instant Ashes hero

Picked as a bolter for his bowling in the 2013 Ashes opener at Trent Bridge, Ashton Agar promptly became a household name in Australia for his batting deeds, coming within one lusty pull shot of an extraordinary debut century from the foot of the order.

When he followed up with the wicket of rival skipper Alastair Cook the following day, Australia looked to have found an unlikely teenage all-rounder.

But spin bowlers rarely find their feet until well into their 20s, so it’s no surprise that Agar’s Test tenure lasted just two matches having yielded only two wickets at an average that soon ballooned beyond his batting.

His willingness to work hard coupled with his undoubted natural ability means he is a player of the future, provided he can shake the burden of expectation created by his unforgettable opening act.
