    VARIOUS SHOTS OF PLAY IN PROGRESS.



    TRANSCRIPT: REPORTER: "Snow to Greg Chappell--and Tony Groig at second slip takes a difficult low chance to make up for some of England's earlier lapses in the field From the other end Arnold to Rodney Marsh. The Australian slashes, and the ball sails over the slips to the boundary. But Marsh's luck wasn't to last despite some aggressive stroke play. Arnold to Marsh again and Edrich takes a fine catch in the gully. With Australia in real trouble at 137 for sight, Snow again to Gleeson---and there's no doubt about that one. With Australia's last man in, snow bowls to Walters. Walters mis-times his shot, and Illingworth--getting right under the ball--??? Australian innings with their total at 142. So England bat??? with a first innings lead of 107. Lillee to Boycott ??? the English opener gets off the mark with a straight ??? Now, with England 60 for none Gleeson to Boycott. Umpire Spencer hesitates and then raises his finger and Boycott is out 47. Edrich, not looking good at all, has a go at Watson. And Marsh takes an easy catch. After tea D'Oliveira really got going. Here he faces a tiring Colley."
