  • Description

    NEW ZEALAND WAS SAVED FROM COMPLETE COLLAPSE AGAINST ENGLAND ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SECOND CRICKET TEST AGAINST ENGLAND TODAY (THURSDAY) AT LORDS WHEN POLLARD AND TAYLOR MADE A FIGHTING SEVENTH WICKET STAND OF 92. AT STUMPS, NEW ZEALAND WAS ALL OUT FOR 175 AND ENGLAND 72 FOR TWO.

    WINNING THE TOSS, NEW ZEALAND IMMEDIATELY RAN INTO TROUBLE AGAINST HOSTILE FAST BOWLING BY FRED RUMSEY. ONE OF HIS EARLY VICTIMS WAS SINCLAIR, WHO WAS CLEAN BOWLED AFTER SCORING ONLY ONE RUN. TAYLOR'S CONTRIBUTION IN THE RALLY WITH POLLARD, BEFORE BEING BOWLED BY TRUEMAN, WAS A FIGHTING 51. ONCE THE PARTNERSHIP WAS LOST, THE NEW ZEALAND FIRST INNINGS WAS QUICKLY BROKEN UP.

    THE ENGLAND INNINGS GOT OFF TO A DISAPPOINTING START. THE OPENERS, BARBER AND BOYCOTT WERE SOON DISMISSED. BARBER WAS OUT, CAUGHT BY DICK AT THE WICKET, BOWLED MOTZ, FOR 13. THEN BOYCOTT WAS OUT, ALSO CAUGHT BY DICK AT WICKET OFF A BALL FROM MOTZ, FOR 14. BUT THAT WAS THE END OF NEW ZEALAND'S SUCCESS FOR THE DAY. TED DEXTER, IN CONFIDENT MOOD, QUICKLY STRUCK HIS BEST FORM WITH SOME FLOWING FOURS OFF COLLINGE. AT STUMPS, DEXTER HAD MADE 30.
