  • Description

    THE WEST INDIES TODAY (TUESDAY) WON THE THIRD TEST AT TRENT BRIDGE, BEATING ENGLAND BY 139 RUNS. NOW TWO-UP IN THE SERIES WITH ONE MATCH DRAWN AND TWO REMAINING IN AUGUST, THE WEST INDIES CANNOT LOSE.

    ENGLAND, SEND IN TO SCORE A RUN A MINUTE WHEN SOBERS DECLARED AT 482 FOR FIVE, WERE IN TROUBLE AFTER ONLY EIGHT MINUTES OF PLAY. HALL HAD MILBURN OUT FOR 12, CAUGHT GRIFFITH.

    AND IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE RUSSEL WAS CAUGHT SOBERS OFF GIBBS FOR 11. GIBBS HAD RUSSEL JABBING AT BALLS THAT WEREN'T THERE.

    ENGLAND'S 100 CAME WITH GRAVENEY HITTING TO LEG AND BEING MISSED BY HUNTE. THAT WAS HIS SECOND LUCKY ESCAPE; HALL HAD DROPPED HIM EARLIER AT MID-ON.

    BUT GRAVENEY WENT ON WITH BOYCOTT AND MADE THE HIGHEST STAND OF THE INNINGS WITH BOYCOTT GETTING 71 - THE HIGHEST INDIVIDUAL SCORE.

    ENGLAND COULD HAVE AVOIDED DEFEAT WHEN CAPTAIN COWDREY CAME IN BUT HE PLAYED A FAST OFF-BREAK FROM GIBBS ON TO HIS PADS AND SOBERS TOOK THE CATCH.

    IN THE LAST OVERS, UNDERWOOD, FACING GRIFFITH, WAS HIT IN THE FACE BY A RISING BALL. BUT HE RECOVERED AND IN THE NEXT OVER HIT A BOUNDARY OFF GIBBS.

    BUT SOON SNOW WAS OUT FOR THREE, AND ENGLAND ALL OUT FOR 253, WITH THE VICTORIOUS WEST INDIES TEAM RACING FOR THE PAVILION TO ESCAPE FROM THE JUBILANT FANS.
