Cricket records for Ashton Agar

5:57 am on 13 July 2013

The Australian teenager Ashton Agar has broken the record for the highest score by a test number 11 in the first Ashes cricket Test against England at Trent Bridge.

The debutant left-arm spinner was out for 98, beating the previous top score of 95 made by the West Indies' Tino Best against England at Edgbaston in 2012.

Agar and Phillip Hughes' 81 not out also set a new 10th wicket test partnership record of 163.

The previous 10th-wicket record of 151 was set by New Zealand's Brian Hastings and Richard Collinge against Pakistan at Auckland in 1973, and equalled in 1997 by Pakistan's Azhar Mahmood and Mushtaq Ahmed against South Africa in Rawalpindi.
