517 for 1

The First Ashes Test Match, Australia vs. England has just concluded in Brisbane.

The game was drawn, and there are four games left in the series.

In the second innings England - who looked in deep trouble earlier in the game - scored a stunning 517 for one.  The first three England batsmen got 100s for the first time since 1924.

Amid all the (probably premature) back-slapping, little mention has been made of England's batting coach Graham Gooch.

Well, here he is, batting for Essex in 1978.  This pic was taken with my old Russian MTO 1000mm lens on Ilford FP3.
