Left hander Bob Cowper scored 307 out of his team's 543 as they drew the 5th Test to retain the Ashes.5th Test MCG 11 Feb 1966. This record was subsequently overtaken by Michael Clarke's triple century against India at the SCG in 2014.

Neil Hawke's 7 wickets could not prevent England win in the 3rd Test SCG but Australia drew even with a win in the 4th Test Adelaide due to Lawry and Simpson.
