  • Description

    PATIENT BATTING BY BILL LAWRY AND BRIAN BOOTH SWUNG AUSTRALIA INTO A DOMINANT POSITION TODAY (FRIDAY) ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE FIFTH AND FINAL TEST MATCH AGAINST ENGLAND AT THE OVAL, LONDON.

    REPLYING TO ENGLAND'S FIRST INNINGS SCORE OF 182, AUSTRALIA LOST THREE WICKETS FOR 96 RUNS, BUT WITH LAWRY CONTRIBUTING 94 AND BOOTH 74 THEY WERE 245 FOR FIVE AT THE CLOSE.

    WITH A LEAD OF 63 RUNS AND FIVE WICKETS STILL STANDING, THEY LOOK WELL ON THE WAY TO AT LEAST A DRAW, WHICH WOULD GIVE THEM VICTORY IN THE FIVE-MATCH SERIES.

    LAWRY BATTED FIVE HOURS 15 MINUTES FOR HIS 94, WHICH INCLUDED ONLY TEN FOURS. HE AND BOOTH PUT ON 106 FOR THE FOURTH WICKET STAND - A PARTNERSHIP WHICH FINALLY SWUNG THE BATTLE AUSTRALIA'S WAY AFTER AGGRESSIVE BOWLING BY ENGLAND'S TOM CARTWRIGHT, FRED TITMUS AND FREDDIE TRUEMAN HAD LOOKED LIKE FORCING AUSTRALIA INTO DIFFICULTIES.

    BOOTH WAS AT THE WICKET JUST OVER THREE HOURS FOR HIS 74.

    (AUSTRALIA WON THE THIRD TEST AND THE OTHER THREE MATCHES WERE DRAWN.)
