Khawaj’s batting heroics speaks volume of his skill. While he already has two half-centuries and now a ton, on the other, India’s top batters, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar have managed just 2 fifties in Test cricket at home since the January of 2021.

Batting first Khawaja gave the visitors a strong start. The Pakistani-born batter then went on to build a partnership with skipper Steve Smith and then ended the day on a strong note with middle-order batter Cameron Green who now remains unbeaten on 49.

Uswan Khawaj’s score at the end of Day 1 reads 104 runs with 15 glorious boundaries.

“A lot of emotion in that. Has been a long journey, getting a hundred, as an Australian you always want to do that. It’s very special. Head took the new ball down. He was smacking them. Was pretty good to watch that from the other end. It was such a nice wicket, I didn’t want to give my wicket away,” he said.

“It was a mental battle more than anything else. You need to keep doing it for a long time. I had the helmet in my right hand, I told him (Green) just me a hug, instead of a high five (following his century). I have no superstitions, I stretched a bit in the morning and I was ready to go,” Khawaja concluded.
