    Background: THE FOURTH DAY OF THE FIRST TEST, ENGLAND vs AUSTRALIA AT BRISBANE ON TUESDAY, PROVED TO BE ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING DAYS OF THE GAME. IT SAW THE END OF THE AUSTRALIA'S FIRST INNINGS, AND THE DISASTROUS BEGINNING OF ENGLAND'S FIRST INNINGS. BY THE END OF THE DAY'S PLAY IT BECAME CLEAR THAT A DRAW WAS THE ONLY LIKELY RESULT OF THE MATCH.

    A LARGE CROWD ARRIVED EARLY TO SEE DOUG WALTERS, THE YOUNG NEW SOUTH WALES BATSMAN, AT THE WICKET. THE PREVIOUS EVENING HE HAD CHALKED UP HIS CENTURY - IN THIS, HIS FIRST APPEARANCE IN TEST CRICKET. THE FOURTH MORNING OF THE MATCH SAW HIM IN FINE FORM, PLAYING AT ALMOST EVERY BALL. WALTERS WAS ON 155 WHEN HE KICKED A BALL FROM HIGGS, AND JIM PARKS BEHIND THE STUMPS TOOK A FINE CATCH.

    VEIVERS, THE QUEENSLAND ALL-ROUNDER WAS IN AGGRESSIVE MOOD AT THE OTHER END. HIS SCORE MOUNTED STEADILY. HIS FIFTY WAS FROM A NICELY TIMED SINGLE OFF GEOFF BOYCOTT. WHEN AUSTRALIA DECLARED AT SIX WICKETS DOWN FOR 443, VEIVERS WAS NOT OUT 56.

    BARBER, OPENING FOR ENGLAND DID NOT LAST LONG, IN THE SECOND OVER NEIL HAWKE TOOK THE BALL AND WITH HIS LAST DELIVERY HAD BARBER OUT. THE ENGLISH OPENER GLANCED A BALL TO FINE LEG - WHERE WALTERS WAS WAITING FOR IT. THE SCORE THEN - ONE WICKET DOWN FOR 5 RUNS.

    EDRICH, THE SURREY BATSMAN WHO WAS IN EXCELLENT FORM EARLIER THIS YEAR WAS IN TROUBLE FROM THE START. PHILPOTT HAD HIM IN DIFFICULTY WITH SEVERAL DELIVERIES, AND IT WAS PHILPOTT WHO FINALLY GOT THE WICKET WHEN EDRICH TRIED TO SWEEP ONE TO THE BOUNDARY - AND LAWRY, FIELDING WIDE OUT, TOOK THE CATCH.

    PHILPOTT HAD ANOTHER SUCCESS A FEW BALLS LATER WHEN HE BEAT BOYCOTT. THE ENGLISH BATSMAN - OPENING IN THE PLACE OF THE INJURED ERIC RUSSELL, PULLED A BALL ONTO HIS WICKET AND WAS OUT FOR 45. ENGLAND WAS THEN THREE WICKETS DOWN FOR 86.

    THE ENGLISH CAPTAIN, MIKE SMITH WAS BEATEN ALL ENDS UP BY THE QUEENSLANDER, PETER ALLAN. HE HAD SCORED ONLY 16 RUNS.

    WHEN JIM PARKS WALKED OUT TO THE CREASE HE BROUGHT WITH HIM ENGLAND'S LAST HOPE. HE PLEASED THE CROWD BY HITTING THE BALL HARD AND OFTEN. BARRINGTON, AT THE OTHER END DECIDED TO LET PARKS TAKE CARE OF THE SCORING WHILE HE KEPT HIS WICKET SAFE. PARKS ENDED HIS INNINGS WHEN HE ATTEMPTED TO SWING ONE FROM PHILPOTT. HE RECEIVED WARM APPLAUSE AS HE WALKED BACK TO THE PAVILION WITH 52 RUNS TO HIS CREDIT. AT THE END OF THE DAY BARRINGTON WAS NOT OUT, 44 AND TITMUS HAD NOT SCORED.

    (WHEN ENGLAND FOLLOWED-ON NEXT DAY 163 RUNS BEHIND AUSTRALIA THEY FACED AN IMPOSSIBLE TASKS, AND THE MATCH ENDED IN A DRAW. IN THEIR SECOND INNINGS, ENGLAND SCORED 186 FOR 3.
