    MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE FIGURE WAS THAT EIGHT OF THESE WICKETS FELL FOR 24 RUNS IN 18.5 OVERS, THE OF WHICH WERE MAVENS. AND IN THIS BRILLIANT FEAT HE HAD NO HELP FORM THE FIELDERS EITHER
    AUSTRALIA HOWEVER, GAINED A FIRST INNINGS LEAD OF 67 RUNS.

    PATEL'S SIX WICKETS FOR 69 SURPASSED THE NINE FOR 102 TAKEN BY SUBHASH GUPTE AGAINST THE WEST INDIES ON THE SAME GROUND LAST SEASON. PATEL IS THE LATEST OFF-SPINNER IN WORLD CRICKET TO RECORD A STARTLING PERFORMANCE AGAINST AUSTRALIAN BATSMEN IN POSTWAR CRICKET.

HARVEY CAME IN TO BAT AND AFTER SOME ANXIOUS MOMENTS AGAINST PATEL, FORCED THE PACE TO SCORE 51 runs BEFORE HE WAS BOWLED BY PATEL. THE SECOND WICKET FELL AT 128, BUT THE ROT SET IN AFTER THAT AND WICKETS FELL QUICKLY AT 149, 159, 175 and 186.
