  • Description

    THE FOURTH TEST ENDED TODAY (TUESDAY) AT OLD TRAFFORD IN A DRAW AS EXPECTED.

    ENGLAND DIDN'T PASS AUSTRALIA'S SCORE (8/656) AND AT THE END OF A DULL DAY'S PLAY WERE ALL OUT FOR 611 - 45 BEHIND.

    THE TEST MATCH SAW SEVERAL RECORDS SHATTERED AND IT WAS THE FIRST ONE IN WHICH BOTH SIDES PASSED 600.

    IF THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE AUSTRALIAN INNINGS WAS (CAPTAIN) BOBBY SIMPSON'S 311 THE ENGLAND BATSMEN DEXTER (174) AND THEN BARRINGTON (256) CAPTURED A FAIR SHARE OF THE HONOURS.

    FOR BARRINGTON (WHO HIT 26 FOURS IN AN INNINGS LASTING 11 1/2 HOURS) IT WAS THE HIGHEST SCORE OF HIS CAREER; WHEN HE WENT LBW TO MCKENZIE HE GOT THE SAME ENTHUSIASTIC OVATION AS DEXTER AND SIMPSON BEFORE HIM.

    THE DRAW ENSURES THAT THE ASHES CAN NOT NOW BE REGAINED FROM THE AUSTRALIANS ON THIS TOUR.
