Australian batsman Matthew Wade has achieved a unique feat in today’s game. As the hosts made tackled the Aussie bowling with ease, skipper Paine had no options than trying partimers. He gave the ball to Wade and Head in a hope of providing a breakthrough. However, this unprecedently made Wade enter a list.
Matthew Wade has now a test half-century, a stumping and also few deliveries bowled as a part of the test career. Only 34 people have achieved this feat till now and Wade is the latest entrant to this.
Wade was roped into the side after his stellar domestic season. He was kept aside from the International side after a poor run couple of years ago. However, his addition hasn’t created magic for the Kangaroos as he was dismissed for 1 run in the first innings.
