  • Description

    FORTUNES SWAYED AGAIN AT TRENT BRIDGE ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE SECOND TEST MATCH BETWEEN ENGLAND AND SOUTH AFRICA. COWDREY WAS THE MAINSTAY OF THE ENGLAND TEAM, BATTING BRILLIANTLY ON AN EASY - PACED WICKET. ONCE AGAIN, AS IN THE FIRST TEST, SOUTH AFRICA'S FIELDING WAS SUPERB, CONTAINING THE ENGLAND BATSMEN AND THE SCORE. AT THE END OF THE DAY SOUTH AFRICA WERE 56 AHEAD WITH 9 SECOND-INNINGS WICKETS LEFT.

    ENGLAND CONTINUED THEIR FIRST INNINGS TODAY WITH THE OVERNIGHT SCORE AT 16-2. FIRST TO GO TODAY WAS BARBER, BRILLIANTLY CAUGHT BY BACHER AFTER SCORING 41.

    STAR OF THE DAY WAS COLIN COWDREY, WHO PULLED HIS TEAM OUT OF TROUBLE WITH SOME FINE STROKES. A FOUR GAVE COWDREY HIS 17TH TEST CENTURY. HE WAS OUT TO A CATCH TAKEN BY LINDSAY FROM BOTTEN'S BOWLING FOR 105. ENGLAND WERE 225 FOR 6.

    SMITH PLAYED ON TO A BALL FROM POLLOCK AND WAS OUT FOR 32...THAT MADE THE SCORE 229 FOR 7. THE LAST OF THE RECOGNISED BATSMEN, PARKS, WAS BRILLIANTLY CAUGHT AND BOWLED BY BOTTEN.

    THE TAIL-ENDERS DID NOT DO AS WELL AS SOUTH AFRICA'S YESTERDAY: SNOW WAS RUN OUT FOR 3, LARTER WAS BOWLED BY FELLOW FAST BOWLER POLLOCK FOR 2 AND THE ENGLAND SCORE CLOSED AT 240.

    IN THE FIELD ONCE AGAIN, ENGLAND SOON TOOK THE WICKET OF LANCE FOR 0 WHEN BARBER TOOK A CATCH AT LEG SLIP. THE ABSENCE OF CARTWRIGHT FROM THE BOWLING STRENGTH WILL GIVE SOUTH AFRICA A FINE CHANCE IN A MATCH WHICH ONCE GAIN TODAY THOROUGHLY ENTERTAINED THE 20,000 CROWD.

    CLOSE OF PLAY SCORES: SOUTH AFRICA 269 AND 27-1 ENGLAND 240.
