    THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKET ELEVEN BEGAN THEIR THREE-DAY MATCH AGAINST THE M.C.C. AT LORDS TODAY (SATURDAY).

    THE M.C.C. BATTED FIRST, AND THE OPENING PAIR, BOYCOTT AND BOLUS PLAYED HAVOC WITH THE AUSTRALIAN BOWLING PUTTING ON A SCORE OF ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FOUR BETWEEN THEM BEFORE BOYCOTT, ON SIXTY-THREE, WAS CAUGHT BEHIND BY WICKET-KEEPER GROUT FROM THE BOWLING OF HAWKE. VERY SOON AFTERWARDS BOLUS WENT THE SAME WAY, AFTER SCORING SEVENTY-TWO RUNS IN A LITTLE UNDER FOUR HOURS AT THE WICKET.

    THE PACE OF THE MATCH INCREASED SOMEWHAT WITH EDRICH AND SMITH AT THE WICKET. HOWEVER AN AUSTRALIAN PACE ATTACK, LED BY CORLING AND MCKENZIE ROUTED THE REMAINDER OF THE M.C.C. TEAM. THE LAST SIX MEN WERE DISMISSED FOR A MERE THIRTY RUNS. THE M.C.C. WERE ALL OUT LATE THIS AFTERNOON FOR 229.
