Boxing Day test debut that promised the elation of a key wicket for Tom Curran went sour in the space of two deliveries yesterday as the rookie England paceman had David Warner caught on 99 with a no-ball. Surrey seamer Curran, who replaced the injured Craig Overton in Joe Root’s team, had pinned down Warner after lunch on day one at a heaving Melbourne Cricket Ground, eventually coaxing the pugnacious opener into a clumsy pull-shot that was caught at mid-on. Curran celebrated wildly with his team mates.
