At MCG Jack Gregory’s century came in a huge Australian victory. Australia batted first and were at 282-7 when Gregory joined Nip Pellew and they both added 173 for the eighth wicket. The most special thing about Gregory’s century was that it came in just 115 balls, a strike-rate of 86.95, which was unimaginable in 1921.

Gregory was far from being done though. He picked up a 7-wicket haul, including the wickets 6 of England’s top 7 batsmen, as England had to follow on. England finsally lost by an innings and 91 runs.
