Usman Khawaja recorded a brilliant comeback to Test cricket by scoring 137 in the first innings and following it up with another stellar century as Australia continued to dominate England on Day 4 of the fourth Ashes Test. The Australian south-paw was in sensational form, smashing the English bowlers to all parts of mighty Sydney Cricket Ground to bring up his second ton of the Test -- his 10th overall in the red ball game. Khawaja's innings was even more special as the batter scored runs at a strike-rate of more than 75.

Twitter lauded the Australian batter, who hadn't played a Test since the 2019 Ashes tour of England.
