    JACOBS:



    "The English batsman seemed in command. Mallett bowling to Parfitt.



    "Hampshire too was in form. Greg Chappell the bowler.



    "A beautiful boundary typical of the Yorkshireman's play today. But then the collapse.



    "Hampshire again, this time facing Mallett.



    "Caught by Inveracity for 42. england 133 for three.



    "Then Lillee bowled to Parfitt who was 51.



    "Parfitt gone and it seemed Australia was back in the game. Captain Illingworth faced the next ball.



    "Greg Chappell took the catch.



    "Knott saved the hat trick and went on to provide the backbone of the England innings. Lillee the bowler.



    "With Arnold, he shared a partnership of 81. Arnold facing Inveracity.



    "But Inveracity soon had his revenge.



    "Arnold finally out for 22"
