  • Description

    Australia ended the third day of the fourth test in Sydney on Monday (6 January) with a virtually unassailable lead of 233 runs with 9 wickets remaining after dismissing England for a first innings score of 295.

    Despite a late rally by England's top scorer Alan Knott (82), the touring side were all out by tea, 110 behind Australia's first innings total of 405. Poor Australian fielding during the first overs of play allowed England to produce a final score more respectable than their shaky position of 123 for 5 at one point seemed to forecast.

    Australia went in to bat after the tea interval, and put on 123 runs by the end of play for the loss of only one wicket - captain Ian Chappell, who was caught by David Lloyd off Bob Willis for five. His brother Greg Chappell and Ian Redpath went on to score an unbeaten 108 in as many minutes.

    The excitable Sydney crowd was active once again - this time booing their own fast bowler Dennis Lillee, who was warned for the second time in two days for bowling bouncers. The crowd also threw a barrage of rubbish at England's fielder Tony Greig, near the boundary.
