Ashes 2019 - Rory Burns Becomes The 2nd English Batsman To Bat On All 5 Days Of An Ashes Test

When Rory Burns took the field on Day 5 of the 1st Ashes Test at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Monday, with England looking to survive the final day after being set a target of 398 by Australia, he became just the 10th player to bat on all five days of a Test match.

Burns came out to bat on day one of the Test after Australia were bowled out for 284 in the first innings. He ended the day batting on 10 not out and went on to register his first Test ton and finished Day 2 at 125 not out. On day three, he could only add eight more runs to his overnight tally and got out for 133 as England were all out for 374 later in the day.

Australia’s reply of 487/7 dec. consumed the remainder of Day 3 and most of Day 4, before the declaration came. Burns walked out for his second dig and remained unbeaten on seven at the close of play. On Day 5, the Surrey opener could only add four more runs to his overnight score before getting dismissed for 11 off a bouncer from Pat Cummins.
