    COMMENTATOR: "So its Willis then to bowl to a new batsman, Bevan Congdon. Do, and he's gone, he's caught. Congdon walks off the very first ball.



    "It's gone high and hard and there's a catch here. Hendricks. And....they've gone for it. They've got the catch.



    "And this time Hadler gone for the big hit, but Boycott's under it. They've (indistinct) there.



    "One hundred and sixteen for seven. Lees puts in an appeal and he's out. "That could be out and he's caught. Brilliantly caught by Phil Edmonds this time fielding in close on the offside.



    "And he's bowled him. What a magnificent sight.



    "Collinge to Miller. And he's caught. He's out. Seven for two wickets, for England.



    "My word the cat's among the pigeons. A chant for Hadlee as he moves in to bowl to the new batsman Chris Old. He's out. That's out. And England lose their eighth wicket. Eight for 53."
