    Background: England cricket captain Peter May won the toss at Sydney, Jan 9, and elected to bat first in the Third Test Match. By lunch the England score was 48 for 2 wickets - the opening pair long since having lost their wickets. Bailey was low to 'thrower' Meckiff and Milton caught off Davidson by Meckiff. Both scored eight runs.

    May and Graveney were still at the wicket when the lunch bell sounded.

    Captain May won the toss in the previous two Test Matches and England lost both matches.
