    Ashes stat of the day

    In the first innings at Adelaide, Alastair Cook's Test average dropped below 50 for the first time.

    This deprived him of the opportunity to become only the third batsman, after Sutcliffe and Miandad, to go an entire career without his Test average dropping below 50. Given England's propensity for debut fifties, there might be an opportunity for some player in the future.
