Since his return, Khawaja has played 28 innings and has scored 1532 runs with 6 centuries and 7 half-centuries. “A lot of emotion in that. Has been a long journey, getting a hundred, as an Australian you always want to do that. It’s very special. Head took the new ball down. He was smacking them. Was pretty good to watch that from the other end. It was such a nice wicket, I didn’t want to give my wicket away. It was a mental battle more than anything else. You need to keep doing it for a long time,” the opener said after the end of day 1 of the fourth Ind vs Aus test.
