  • Description

    THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKETERS CHALKED UP ANOTHER WIN TODAY (TUESDAY) WITH A NINE-WICKET VICTORY OVER THE MCC AT LORD'S. ONLY TED DEXTER (55), THE ENGLAND CAPTAIN FOR THE FIRST TEST, AND JOHN EDRICH (57) STOOD OUT FOR THE MCC.

    FINAL SCORES: MCC 229 & 224 - AUSTRALIANS 358/6DEC. AND 99 FOR 1.

    AUSTRALIAN SKIPPER BOBBY SIMPSON BEAT DEXTER WITH A CURLER, AND THEN THE ROT SET IN. EDRICH FOLLOWED 13 RUNS LATER AFTER A SPARKLING INNINGS AND THE MCC WERE 150 FOR 4.

    THE MCC CAPTAIN, MIKE SMITH, HAD A MISERABLE MATCH. AFTER A FIRST INNINGS FAILURE, HE WENT FOR 9 TODAY -- BOWLED BY GRAHAM MCKENZIE, WHO FINISHED WITH 3/40.

    WALLY GROUT STUMPED BARRY KNIGHT FOR A SOLITARY 1, AND THEN JACK POTTER, A USEFUL SPINNER IN EMERGENCY, COLLECTED HIS SECOND WICKET, BOWLING JIM PARKS FOR AN AGGRESSIVE 25.

    THE MCC INNINGS FOLDED AT 224, AND THE AUSTRALIANS WERE LEFT 80 MINUTES TO MAKE 96 RUNS. A HOOK TO THE BOUNDARY BY SIMPSON DID THE TRICK WITH 15 MINUTES TO SPARE -- AND GAVE SIMPSON HIS SEVENTH SUCCESSIVE KNOCK OF 50 OR MORE.
