Ashes comeback hero Usman Khawaja has posted a remarkable childhood photo of himself and David Warner on his social media in a nod to him opening the batting at Bellerive Oval on Friday.
After two-and-a-half years in the Test wilderness, Khawaja completed a fairytale return a classy 137 at the SCG in the first innings.

Khawaja then backed it up with another century in the second innings to hand Australia and near unassailable lead.
Despite the Aussie sensation not expecting to retain his spot in the team, having filled in for Travis Head, on Thursday he got the nod with Marcus Harris dropped.
And ahead of the Fifth and final Test, Khawaja posted a photo of himself and Warner walking out to bat together as children.
"Keeping it real since the 90s," Khawaja wrote.
