    SOUTH AFRICA WAS DISMISSED FOR 279 AND AUSTRALIA WERE 122 FOR 5 IN THEIR FIRST INNINGS AT THE CLOSE OF PLAY ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE THIRD TEST AT THE WANDERERS' GROUND IN JOHANNESBURG YESTERDAY (FEB. 20)
    THE SOUTH AFRICAN OVERNIGHT BATSMAN LANCE WAS RUN OUT BY LAWRY IN THE SECOND OVER OF THE DAY WHEN IRVINE CALLED FOR A SHORT SINGLE. IN THE SAME OVER LINDSAY WAS OUT AFTER COMING TO THE WICKET TO TREMENDOUS APPLAUSE. HE PULLED A BALL FROM GLEESON TO STACKPOLE WHO TOOK A GOOD CATCH LOW DOWN AT MID-WICKET. THE SCORE WAS NOW 194 FOR 6. IRVINE, AND THE NEW BATSMAN PROCTER, CARRIED THE SCORE TO 238 BEFORE WALTERS TEMPTED PROCTER TO A CUT WHICH WAS SNAPPED UP BY CHAPPELL IN THE SLIPS. PROCTER HAD SCORED A USEFUL 22 RUNS. THE NINTH WICKET FELL WHEN WALTERS HAD PETER POLLOCK CAUGHT BEHIND BY TABER FOR A DUCK. IRVINE WAS NOW IN HIS STRIDE AND HE RACED TO 79 INCLUDING TWO SIXES BEFORE BEING CAUGHT AT MID-WICKET BY STACKPOLE WITH THE SCORE AT 279. THE LAST WICKET STAND ADDED 34 LEAVING TRAICOS NOT OUT ON ONE. CONNOLLY FINISHED THE INNINGS WITH BOWLING FIGURES OF 2 FOR 49, GLEESON 3 FOR 61, AND WALTERS 2 FOR 16.

    AUSTRALIA STARTED ITS FIRST INNINGS DISASTROUSLY. THE FIRST THREE WICKETS FELL FOR 12 RUNS. IN THE THIRD OVER STACKPOLE WAS DROPPED IN SLIPS OFF PROCTER BUT TWO BALLS LATER HE WAS CAUGHT BEHIND BY LINDSAY FOR FIVE. IN THE NEXT OVER LINDSAY TOOK HIS SECOND CATCH TO DISMISS LAWRY FOR ONE OFF PETER POLLOCK.

    REDPATH WAS LEG BEFORE WICKET FOR A DUCK TO PROCTER AND CHAPPELL AND WALTERS STRUGGLED TO CARRY THE SCORE FROM 12, TO 77 FOR 3 BY TEA.

    AT THE CLOSE OF PLAY AUSTRALIA WERE 122 FOR 5 HAVING LOST THE WICKETS OF WALTERS FOR 64 AND CHAPPELL FOR 34 IN THE FINAL SESSION. PROCTER HAD BOWLING FIGURES OF 2 -- 20 AND PETER POLLOCK 2 -- 29.
