    Background: THERE WERE CHANGING FORTUNES AT TRENT BRIDGE TODAY (FRIDAY) ON THE SECOND DAY'S PLAY OF THE FIRST TEST MATCH. AT CLOSE OF PLAY ENGLAND HAS SCORED 216 RUNS FOR EIGHT WICKETS IN THEIR FIRST INNINGS. ONCE AGAIN BAD WEATHER HAD INTERRUPTED PLAY AND 95 MINUTES WERE LOST. IN THE FOUR 25 MINUTES OF PLAY ENGLAND ADDED 164 RUNS FOR THE LOSS OF SEVEN WICKETS.

    BOTH LENGTH AND DIRECTION WERE MISSING FROM THE AUSTRALIAN BOWLING WHEN PLAY BEGAN, BUT NEVERTHELESS BOYCOTT AND DEXTER FACED A DIFFICULT MORNING'S BATTING.

    DEXTER, WHO HAD NEVER LOOKED HAPPY, ADDED ONLY 3 TO HIS OVERNIGHT TOTAL BEFORE BEING CAUGHT BEHIND BY GROUT, BOWLED HAWKE, FOR 9. SO COWDREY JOINED BOYCOTT WITH THE SCORE AT 70. BOYCOTT CONTINUED TO PLAY A FINE INNINGS BUT FELL TO CORLING WHEN HE SNICKED A DIFFICULT CHANGE BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND SLIP. SIMPSON HELD THE CATCH MAGNIFICENTLY.

    BARRINGTON TOOK BOYCOTT'S PLACE AND PLAYED COMFORTABLY TILL THE LUNCH INTERVAL WITH THE SCORE WITH THE SCORE STANDING AT 124 FOR THREE WICKETS.

    AFTER LUNCH BARRINGTON HIT A VERY HARD, BUT UNLUCKILY STRAIGHT BALL TO LAWRY WHOSE CATCH GAVE VEIVERS HIS FIRST WICKET. SHARPE CAME IN AND MISSED, SOON AFTER, BY BOOTH AT THIRD SLIP.

    COWDREY WAS NEXT TO GO WITH A BALL FROM HAWKE THAT BRUSHED HIS PADS AND THEN HIT THE WICKET.

    PARKS, ENGLAND'S WICKET-KEEPER, TOOK THE BATTING CREASE AND SOON ASSAULTED VEIVER'S BOWLING. HE HIT HIM FOR 12 IN AN OVER, LIFTING AN ON-DRIVE FOR SIX. BUT VEIVERS WON THE DAY WHEN PARKS SWEPT THE BALL THROUGH THE AIR TO BOOTH AT SQUARE-LEG.

    TRUEMAN, WHO MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE MAN TO HIT VEIVERS OFF-SPINNERS ROUND THE FIELD, WAS OUT FIRST BALL WHEN HE EDGED MILDLY TO SIMPSON AT SLIP.

    ALLEN WAS SHARPE'S LAST HOPE OF A SUBSTANTIAL PARTNER - AND A FINE JOB HE DID FOR ENGLAND. HIS PARTNERSHIP WITH SHARPE TOOK THE SCORE FROM 176 TO 212 DURING WHICH BAD LIGHT AND RAIN INTERRUPTED THE GAME JUST AFTER THE TEA INTERCAL. BY THE TIME THE STORM HAD PASSED AWAY THERE WAS ONLY A QUARTER OF AN HOUR'S PLAY LEFT, TIME ENOUGH FOR ALLEN TO BE CAUGHT BEHIND OFF MCKENZIE FOR 21. COLDWELL REPLACED BUT FAILED TO SCORE BEFORE THE CLOSE OF PLAY.
