  • Description

    THE THIRD DAY OF THE CRICKET TEST MATCH, AUSTRALIA VS WEST INDIES, WAS PLAYED AT KINGSTON IN JAMAICA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). THE AUSTRALIAN FIRST INNINGS ENDED QUICKLY WITH A SCORE OF 217 IN REPLY TO WEST INDIES FIRST INNINGS TOTAL OF 239.

    THE OPENING BATSMEN IN THE WEST INDIES SECOND INNINGS WERE HUNTE AND NURSE. A MISUNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THEM COST THE WICKET OF NURSE WHEN HIS SCORE STOOD AT 17. HE CALLED HUNTE FOR A LEG-BYE. BUT HUNTE WASN'T READY AND NURSE WAS TWO-THIRDS OF THE WAY DOWN THE PITCH BEFORE HE REALISED HIS PARTNER HAD NOT RESPONDED. AUSTRALIAN WICKET-KEEPER GROUT MOVED SLIGHTLY TOWARD FINE LEG AND THREW THE BALL TO THE BOWLER. NURSE WALKED SLOWLY BACK TO THE PAVILION - RUN OUT.

    KANHAI WAS THE NEXT BATSMAN. HE SCORED 16 RUNS BEFORE HE LIFTED A BALL FROM PHILPOTT BACK INTO THE BOWLER'S HANDS.

    NEXT, BUTCHER AND HUNTE BETWEEN THEM THRILLED THE CROWD WITH A SERIES OF FOURS AND SINGLES. BUTCHER REACHED 71 BEFORE HE FELL VICTIM TO PHILPOTT. HUNTE - THE OPENER - STILL LOCKED CONFIDENT AT THE CLOSE OF PLAY WITH 74 RUNS TO HIS CREDIT. THE WEST INDIES TOTAL, WHEN STUMPS WERE DRAWN, WAS 199 FOR THREE WICKETS.
