    General View pan down court building to reporter standing outside speaks
    75 ft


    The general massage heard in the High Court was that Mr. Packer's involvement in cricket was good for the game and for the players, former England fast bowler John Snow said that for the first time in his career he felt involved in something that he was properly organised in and that paid him according to his abilities".



    "And then came Mr. Packer's most direct threat to the test and county cricket board and the ITCs proposed ban on his players, referring to his contracts with them he told the court he wanted the ability to put the banned players together in an English ???. He made it clear that he is prepared to stage his own matches in England in the coming season, but he added pointedly this would not be done if his contracted players were not banned from county or test cricket here and on the ban itself Mr. Packer ended today's hearing by declaring. I think it's a very wrong thing a denial of the players right".
