Cricket...and seam bowler Max Walker took seven wickets for 88 to give an Australian XI a 14-run first innings lead over the World XI on the third day (Monday) of their first World Series Cricket "super test". However, at close of play at Sydney Showground, the World XI had fought back to send the Australians crashing to 13 for two in their second innings. West Indian batsman Viv Richards was the only World player to look comfortable against Walker's steady bowling, scoring 119 in his side's total of 290. The World XI resumed at 199 for four, chasing the Australians' first innings total of 304 and found runs difficult to score. The second day's play on Sunday was interrupted briefly by anti-apartheid demonstrators who ran on to the field carrying banners. They shook their fists in the face of Barry Richards, the World XI's South African opening batsman. A report from Australia's TCN-9 described the match from midway through the Australian XI's first innings on the second day.
