Ashes milestones and records thread

A thread to list all of the test milestone/records that could occur during the Ashes, or Ashes specific records/milestones that are a little more obscure.

For the overall milestones:
Pat Cummins needs 6 wkts to reach 100
Tim Paine needs 8 dismissals to reach 100

Broad also needs 6 wkts to reach 450 test wkts, only the 4th pace bowler to do so

While Lyon needs 7 wkts for 350 and 13 wkts to go past the great Dennis Lillee on 355 wkts (will then be 3rd overall for Australia behind only Warne and McGrath).

Now a not so nice record.

Rory Burns will become only the 57th Englishman to open in 8 tests or more. If he scores less than 25 runs in his 2 innings, he will officially have the lowest average of those 57 players (currently 22.28, lowest is Trevor Bailey with 21.04, who was more of an allrounder and make-shift opener in 14 of his 61 tests)

Burgey needs to make 100% **** posts to maintain a 100% **** posting record since 2006

Broad and Anderson will be involved in their fifth successful Ashes should we win. Can’t have been many Englishmen claiming that accolade in a long while.

America have been at war in Afghanistan for less time than Australia have been waiting to win in England. Both have been a very long time and both likely to continue for some time yet.

Once upon a time there was a cricket team from Australia, they were very very good.........the end.

It's a riveting story, little wonder you love to regale us with it so frequently.

Yeah but the point trundler made is current and therefore relevant (things I never thought would be said) Stephens........not so much.

And it should be pointed out that Aus have won 33 Ashes series compared to Enlands 32, with 5 drawn series.

Hardly as historically dominant as the crimms would have us believe is it?

I slow down for a day and Adders goes all mushy on me.

Also, do the 19th century ones really count?

I have an assurance that the Nixon's will flow thick and fast for any non Eng/Aus posters attempting to participate here once the series gets under way.

Get your own history and premiere series ****s.......this is all ours.

England won about 12 of theirs pre-1900 ffs. They've been consistently rodgered since WW1.

Siddle is the last Aussie bowler to take a wkt in England (Ali in 2015) and is currently the highest Ashes wkt taker in the squad with 73 (Lyon 65, Starc 51, Hazlewood 37)

Edit: Siddle also needs 7 wkts to get to 50 wkts in England, the 10th highest ever = with Merv Hughes and Bill O'reilly


This should make Nufan happy :)

Ian Bell has done it. Only Botham and Wilfred Rhodes had done it before him.

lol, if you're bringing up Rhodes (played 1899-1926) might as well bring out WG Grace with 6 wins (btw Rhodes was also involved in 6 Ashes defeats).

Looking this up, I found Steve Waugh was involved in 8 series wins, Shane Warne 7 and Mark Waugh, Mark Taylor, Ian Healy and Glenn McGrath 6. In the current squad, this will be Smith, Warner and Lyons 3rd series win ;)
