    Almost 9,000 people turned up to watch the first day's play, almost 6,000 more than came to VFL Park in Melbourne, where the first self-styled Packer Supertest opened on the same day.



    DAVID NORDSVAN: "And away it goes through midwicket. Well played by Cosier...that's the first four.



    So, as Bedi bowls to Ogilvie...caught at slip, I think. Yes, caught by Viswanath.



    WE must pick them up in moment.Look at that turn. That.s a chance. And he's caught. He's out.



    And caught. Yes, he's out. That could be out. Yes, bat-pad. Caught by Amarnath."

    Background: Cricket in its official guise...and Indian captain Bishen Bedi humbled Australian batsmen as the First Test match began on Friday (2 December) at the Brisbane Ground in Queensland. Bedi took 5/55 and was the main force in restricting Australia's first innings to a modest 166. Among his victims was Australian captain Bobby Simpson, caught for seven, in his first Test innings for almost 10 years. Twenty-three-year-old newcomer, Peter Toohey from New South Walves, gave the Australian innings most of its substance with a fine, aggressive innings of 82, as the last five wickets put on 121 runs.
