  • Description

    WEST INDIES NEED ANOTHER 152 RUNS IN THEIR SECOND INNINGS, TO AVOID AN INNINGS DEFEAT IN THE SECOND CRICKET TEST AT KINGSTON JAMAICA, AFTER BEING ROUTED IN THEIR FIRST INNINGS FOR 143. THE ENGLAND PACE BOWLEN, JOHN SNOW, WAS THE STAR OF THE ENGLAND SIDE YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WHEN HE TOOK SEVEN WICKETS FOR 49 RUNS, THE BEST FIGURES OF HIS TEST CAREER. WEST INDIES CHASING ENGLANDS FIRST INNINGS SCORE OF 376, WERE FORCED TO FOLLOW ON AND, AT THE CLOSE OF PLAY YESTERDAY, HAD MANAGED TO PUSH THE SCORE TO 81 FOR NO WICKETS.

    THE HIGHLIGHT OF SNOW'S HOSTILE ATTACK ON THE WEST INDIES BATSMEN CAME WHEN HE TOOK THE WICKETS OF ROHAN KANHAI AND GARY SOBERS, IN SUCCESSIVE BALLS. EVEN THE ADVENTUROUS KANHAI HAD STRUGGLED ON THE TREACHEROUS SABINA PARK WICKET. HE SCORED 26 IN 147 MINUTES BEFORE FALLING TO SNOW.

    SOBERS CAME IN TO TUMULTUOUS APPLAUSE FROM THE CAPACITY CROWD OF 13,000 BUT LEFT THE PITCH TO DEATHLY SILENCE ONLY A FEW MINUTES LATER, AFTER BEING GIVEN L.B.W. FOR A DUCK, OFF THE FIRST BALL HE RECEIVED.

    FROM THEN ON, SNOW FLAYED THE WEST INDIES BATSMEN. HE CLAIMED FOUR WICKETS FOR 23 RUNS IN SIX OVERS AFTER LUNCH AND ONLY BASIL BUTCHER AND CLIVE LLOYD SHOWED ANY RESISTANCE.

    THE CRACK-RIDDEN WICKET WAS HELD LARGELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WEST INDIES COLLAPSE, WITH BALLS ALTERNATIVELY KICKING OFF A GOOD LENGTH OR SHOOTING THROUGH AT ANKLE-HEIGHT. STROKE-MAKING WAS A RISKY PROPOSITION AND MANY BATSMEN WERE STRUCK PAINFUL BLOWS BY UNPREDICTABLE DELIVERIES. LLOYD, WHO WAS UNDEFEATED FOR 34, AFTER 135 MINUTES AT THE WICKET, WAS ONE OF THE VICTIMS WHEN HE WAS FLOORED BY A FLIER FROM JONES.

    MURRAY WAS CAUGHT BY D'OLIVEIRA OFF THE BOWLING OF BROWN, FOR 5...CAMACHO FELL TO SNOW'S BOWLING FOR A DUCK.

    IN THEIR SECOND INNINGS, WEST INDIES FOUGHT BACK STRONGLY WITH A FINE PARTNERSHIP BY OPENERS, SEYMOUR NURSE AND STEVE CAMACHO. BUT THEY FACE A LONG, HARD STRUGGLE AGAINST THE ENGLAND THREE-PRONGED PACE ATTACK, WHEN PLAY RESUMES TOMORROW (MONDAY).
