Ashes Hobart Test: Joe Root declares, England will play for ‘fight and pride’ in fifth & Final Test

Lyrics:

Khawaja loved the game of cricket since he was a boy, with his good friend Davey it was their pride and joy.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.

He took the train down to the SCG, he said Dave one day we’ll play there you and me.

He loved his bat and ball and gloves, he loved his batting pads, played a million weekend games in front of mums and dads.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.

Cricket lit a fire deep in his soul and every day he worked on his control.

Usman Khawaja soon he showed his grace, he knew how to leave the ball and how to set the pace.

He set himself to conquer speed and swing and spin and seam. And before too long he made the national team.

Khawaja pretty soon found out that when you reach the top, it’s only temporary as everybody wants your spot.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.

For reasons we don’t always know, selectors say yes sometimes then say no.

And at the age of 35 most thought he was through, he got some luck and got the call and to himself stayed true.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.

At the SCG he made a stunning ton, and then backed it up with an even better one.

Usman Khawaja a man of good and grace, he knows when to take his time and when to up the pace.

Many other batsmen love to land a blow, but Usman’s all about the flow.

Usman Khawaja the boy’s still in your face, to many you bring joy and make the world a better place.

Triumph and disaster you treat them equally.

Uzzie you’ll go down in history.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.

Khawajaaaaaaaa.
