England won the 1926 Ashes series against Australia, winning the last Test of the series after the first four matches were drawn. Because the series was at stake, the match was to be 'timeless' (played to a finish). Australia had a narrow first innings lead of 22. Hobbs and Sutcliffe took the score to 49-0 at the end of the second day, a lead of 27. Heavy rain fell overnight, and next day the pitch soon developed into a traditional sticky wicket. England seemed certain to be bowled out cheaply and to lose the match. In spite of the very difficult batting conditions, however, Hobbs and Sutcliffe took their partnership to 172 before Hobbs was out for exactly 100. Sutcliffe went on to make 161 and in the end England won the game comfortably
