George Bailey is playing just his third Test for Australia, but he already has a share of a Test cricket record after clubbing 28 runs in a single James Anderson over.

West Indies great Brian Lara had also managed the same amount against South Africa during a Test in 2003.

Bailey has been skippering the Australia ODI side with such aplomb and batting so well that his form demanded he was picked for the Ashes series.

He has yet to cement his place with the willow so far in the Test arena, but as Australia were pushing for a huge second-innings lead, he was allowed freedom to hit the ball.

He took full advantage, striking three sixes, two fours and a two from six deliveries.

As a symbol of the dominance that Australia are enjoying over England at present, the newest batsman in Australia's lineup carting England's lead bowler was a pretty telling one.

Michael Clarke could have allowed the fun to continue, but the over pushed the lead beyond 500 and Australia declared to pursue the 10 wickets, which will secure them the Ashes.
