1991 - Mark Waugh's debut to remember


Mark Waugh - brought in to the Australia side at the expense of his twin brother Steve - scores an outstanding 138 on his Test debut in the Fourth Test at Adelaide in 1991.

When Waugh came to the crease, Australia were in trouble at 104 for four. But his exquisite century off 148 balls turned the match around and marked the arrival of a real talent. It was the first of six Ashes centuries for Waugh, who was 25 at the time, and almost certainly the best.
