  • Description

    THE TEST MATCH; AND WITH ONE DAY LEFT FOR PLAY IN THE FINAL TEST AT THE OVAL THE GAME IS FINELY POISED. ENGLAND ARE 381 FOR FOUR WICKETS, 184 AHEAD WITH SIX WICKETS LEFT TO FALL.

    GEOFF BOYCOTT, 23-YEAR-OLD YORKSHIREMAN, BUILT ON HIS OVERNIGHT SCORE OF 74 AND GOT HIS MAIDEN TEST CENTURY. JUST AFTER LUNCH, WITH THE SORE AT 200, BOYCOTT WAS CAUGHT IN THE SLIPS BY REDPATH OFF A BALL FROM SIMPSON. THE OVAL CROWD GAVE A WARM RECEPTION FOR BOYCOTT'S 113 RUNS.

    COWDREY CAME IN TO TAKE BOYCOTT'S PLACE WITH TITMUS AT THE OTHER END. TITMUS, WHO HAD COME IN AS NIGHT WATCHMAN ON SATURDAY MADE A COURAGEOUS 56. BUT HIS HALF CENTURY TOOK TOO LONG -- SOME 3 1/2 HOURS -- WHEN ENGLAND BADLY NEEDED RUNS.

    TITMUS WAS BOWLED BY GRAHAM MCKENZIE, PLAYING AN INSWINGER ONTO HIS STUMPS. MCKENZIE'S WICKET MEANS HE NOW SHARES THE RECORD OF CLARRIE GRIMMET BY TAKING 29 WICKETS IN AN ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN TEST SERIES IN BRITAIN.

    COLIN COWDREY WAS JOINED BY BARRINGTON AND THEY WENT ON TO ACCUMULATE RUNS SLOWLY. WITH HIS SCORE AT 51 COWDREY JOINED SIX OTHER PLAYERS TO HAVE ACHIEVED 5,000 RUNS IN TEST CRICKET.

    BY CLOSE OF PLAY COWDREY AND BARRINGTON HAD ADDED 126 IN 2 1/2 HOURS. COWDREY WITH 93 NOT OUT AND BARRINGTON WITH 54 NOT OUT.

    PLAY WAS DELAYED FOR 15 MINUTES AT THE START BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER.
