  • Description

    AUSTRALIA'S 16-MAN TEST CRICKET SQUAD HAS WASTED NO TIME IN GETTING THE FEEL OF THE ENGLISH TURF. YESTERDAY -- THE DAY AFTER THEIR ARRIVAL -- THE AUSTRALIANS HAD TWO HOUR-LONG SESSIONS IN THE NETS AT LORDS.

    THE AUSTRALIAN CAPTAIN, BILL LAWRY, HAS SAID HE IS DETERMINED TO RETAIN THE ASHES AND HE CONFIRMED HIS STATEMENT WITHIN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES AT PRACTICE. EACH BATSMAN TOOK A TURN AT THE CREASE, AND LAWRY HIMSELF DEALT SEVERELY WITH ANYTHING LOOSE FROM BOWLERS WHO WERE STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THE LONG JOURNEY.

    NEIL HAWKE, ASHLEY MALLETT AND GRAHAM MCKENZIE SOON GOT THE FEEL OF THINGS AND DOUG WALTERS LOOKED IMPRESSIVE IN HIS 20-MINUTE SESSION. VICTORIAN OPENER IAN REDPATH LOOKED CONFIDENT AND AT ONE STAGE HOOKED MCKENZIE OUT OF THE NET AND OUT OF THE GROUND.

    THE BOWLERS WERE WATCHED CLOSELY. PARTICULAR ATTENTION WAS PAID TO MCKENZIE AND LEG-SPINNER JOHN GLEESON. AFTER THE BATTING SESSION LAWRY TOOK THE TOURISTS THROUGH FIELDING PRACTICE.
