Australia first dug themselves into a hole and then had one man - a debutant - aggressively dig them out with the sheer power of resilient batting.
19-year-old spinner Ashton Agar made a mark and gained an entry into the record books with his 98 - batting at No. 11 - to help his side take a firm grip of Day 2 of the opening Ashes Test against England.
The visitors had their back to the wall when proceedings began on Thursday. Resuming the innings, Steve Smith was the first to depart when he edged James Anderson on 53.
Anderson's first of the day was only a sign of things to come as he steam-rolled the Aussie middle-order.

His five-wicket haul helped England push Australia to 117/9.
Though Phil Hughes was managing to hold his ground from one end, he needed someone to support him from the other. In stepped the last man in Agar.
The Melbourne-lad completed his fifty off as many deliveries and received a standing ovation from fans at Trent Bridge.
There was no stopping him even after his half-century. Agar hit as many as 12 boundaries and 2 sixes en route to 98 - surpassing the highest No.11 individual Test score of 95 scored by West Indies' Tino Best. He did fall two short of the three-figure mark but his innings was good enough to give his side a 65-run lead in the 1st innings.
England's start in the second innings was quite disastrous. Mitchell Starc removed Joe Root (5) in the eight over.
A ball later, Starc dismissed Jonathan Trott - LBW - under controversial circumstances.
Given not-out, Aussie skipper Michael Clarke chose to review. Replays showed an inside edge but hot-spot from the side angle was not working and hence, failed to show the knick. It was otherwise a straight case of ball hitting the pad and Trott had to leave.
Cook (37) steadied the innings though and alongwith Pietersen (35), remained unbeaten till the end.
England ended the day on 80/2 - a lead of 15.
