Ashes 2019: Records that can be scripted in fifth Test

The Ashes 2019 fifth Test match is all set to start from September 12 onwards at The Oval.

Australia lead the proceedings by a 2-1 margin and have retained the urn.

England will be wanting to level the series and put up a fight.

There are several records that can be scripted in the fifth Test.

Here we look at the same.

Tim Paine

Australian skipper Tim Paine is on the verge of a special record.

He could join the list of Australian captains to have won a Test series in England if his side avoids defeat at The Oval.

It is a feat no Australia captain has achieved since Steve Waugh oversaw a 4-1 success 18 years ago.

Paine will be eager to enter the record books.

Smith Ashes

Smith can register these special records

Steve Smith (2,697) needs just 45 runs more to surpass former England great Herbert Sutcliffe (2,741).

With this, he will become the seventh-highest run-scorer in the history of The Ashes.

Smith needs one ton to equal the tally of Sir Jack Hobbs (12) in Ashes history.

Smith needs 29 runs to reach the mark of 700 in this series.
