Warwick Armstrong Bowled Two Consecutive Overs

On July 25, 1921, at Old Trafford, Australian all-rounder Warwick Armstrong bowled two consecutive overs in the same innings in a Test match for the first time since it was outlawed in 1890. What has happened? The rain had reduced the test to a two-day match. England batted, and Lionel Tennyson declared at 5.50 with the score at 341/4.
But as the umpires and batsmen left, Australian wicketkeeper Sammy Carter informed his captain, Armstrong, that, as per Law 55, Tennyson was not allowed to declare within the last 100 minutes of a day in a two-day match. So the Australians stayed put (I am more or less certain Armstrong enjoyed this), as everyone had to return.

Then Armstrong, who had bowled the last over before the break, bowled the next one as well. Warwick Windridge Armstrong was an Australian cricketer who played 50 Test matches between 1902 and 1921. An all-rounder, Warwick captained the Australian side in 10 Test matches between 1920 and 1921 and was undefeated, winning 8 Tests and drawing 2.
Warwick Armstrong was captain of the 1920–21 Australian team, which defeated the touring English side by a massive margin of 5–0. This is one of only three teams to win an Ashes series in a whitewash. Despite having his Test career cut short by the First World War, Warwick Armstrong amassed 2,863 runs at an average of 38.68, which included six hundreds, and 87 wickets at 33.59, with a career-best six for 35. Warwick Armstrong was inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame in 2000.
