When David Warner and Steve Smith were out of the Australian team due to the ban, Usman Khawaja was getting a chance. He was doing well for the team at that time, but due to some poor innings, he was dropped from the team, as David Warner and Steve Smith had returned. In such a situation, he turned to domestic cricket and again performed well and made a place in the Australian team.
However, in August 2019, he played for Australia for the last time in Test cricket and now in early 2022 he got a chance to play for the Kangaroo team in Test cricket. Travis Head was found corona infected. In such a situation, Usman Khawaja’s entry was made in the playing XI and he proved that he could still score runs for the team. 35-year-old Usman Khawaja presented his claim by scoring a century in the fourth Test match of the Ashes series.
Usman Khawaja completed his 9th century of Test career in 102 balls. Usman Khawaja came out to bat when the team had suffered three blows for 117 runs. He then partnered with Steve Smith and the last batsmen to help send the score past 300. Meanwhile, he also completed his century. This century scored at the Sydney Cricket Ground will be his special.
Left-handed batsman Usman Khawaja had not played international cricket for two and a half years and when he got the opportunity, he grabbed this opportunity with both hands. That’s what everyone wants from an experienced player. Even every single player wants him to come back and give his best and work for the team. With this innings, Usman Khawaja has also presented his claim for the next match.
