  • Description

    AT THE END OF THE THIRD DAY OF THE TEST AT LORDS TODAY (SATURDAY), ENGLAND ARE NOW IN A GOOD POSITION AFTER SCORING 355 IN THEIR FIRST INNINGS, 86 AHEAD OF THE WEST INDIES. AT THE CLOSE, THE TOURISTS HAD LOST ONE SECOND-INNINGS WICKET FOR 18.

    ENGLAND BEGAN THE DAY WITH TWO DOWN FOR 145, BUT AFTER ONLY HALF-AN-HOUR, SOBERS CLEAN BOWLED BARRINGTON FOR 19 AND ENGLAND WERE 164 FOR 3.

    THE BIG QUESTION OF THE MORNING WAS WHETHER GRAVENEY - 65 OVERNIGHT - WOULD GET HIS CENTURY IN HIS FIRST TEST FOR THREE YEARS. HALL ANSWERED THE QUESTION BY HAVING HIM CAUGHT BEHIND, FOUR SHORT OF HIS HUNDRED.

    ENGLAND'S MISFORTUNE OF THE DAY CAME WHEN HALL BOWLED TO PARKS WHO DROVE THE BALL BACK DOWN THE PITCH. IT HIT THE HEEL OF BASIL D'OLIVEIRA, MAKING HIS TEST DEBUT AND WAS DEFLECTED ON TO THE STUMPS. HALL WHIPPED OUT A STUMP AND D'OLIVERIA WAS RUN OUT AFTER SCORING A GRACEFUL 27.

    WITH ENGLAND 251 FOR SIX, PARKS HIT OUT AT THE BOWLING AND SCORED FREELY THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON. WHEN HE WAS ON 91, THE SECOND HIGHEST SCORE OF THE INNINGS, PARKS FACED CAREW AND WAS TRAPPED LEG BEFORE. THAT WAS VIRTUALLY THE END OF THE ENGLAND INNINGS, WHICH CLOSED AT 86 RUNS TO THE GOOD.

    THE WEST INDIES SECOND INNINGS BEGAN DRAMATICALLY. WITH ONLY TWO RUNS ON THE BOARD CAREW EDGED A BALL FROM HIGGS TO KNIGHT WHO HELD A BRILLIANT CATCH.
