  • Description

    TED DEXTER SMASHED ENGLAND INTO A WINNING POSITION ON THE FOURTH DAY OF THE FIRST TEST AT TRENT BRIDGE TODAY (MONDAY) WITH A BRILLIANT DISPLAY OF BATTING AFTER AUSTRALIA WERE ALL OUT FOR 168. HE SCORED 56 RUNS OUT OF 71 IN THE LAST EIGHTY MINUTES PLAY -- ELEVEN OF THESE WERE SUPERB FOURS.

    AFTER ENGLAND DECLARED THEIR FIRST INNINGS CLOSED AT FRIDAY'S 216 FOR EIGHT, TRUEMAN, COLDWELL AND ALLEN TOOK THE WICKETS TO MAKE AUSTRALIA 85 FOR FOUR AT LUNCH. IN THE FIRST STAGES AUSTRALIA WERE ONLY IN THE TWENTIES AND STRUGGLING FOR RUNS. AND THEN O'NEILL HIT THE SHOT OF THE MORNING - SIX ALL THE WAY.

    IN THE SAME OVER ENGLAND PUT DOWN WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN THE MOST COSTLY OF THREE CATCHES MISSED DURING THE DAY. O'NEILL GOT AN EDGE TO THE BALL AND IT FLEW LOW OVER SLIPS BUT COWDREY DIDN'T GET TO IT.

    ENGLAND'S FIRST BREAK WAS TRUEMAN'S ONE MEMORABLE DELIVERY IN 22 DULL OVERS. IT COMPLETELY BEAT IAN REDPATH AND TIPPED HIS OFF-STUMP WITH THE SCORE ON EIGHT. ENGLAND'S BEST BOWLER TODAY WAS COLDWELL. HE WAS ABLE TO SWING THE BALL VERY SHARPLY -- THAT'S HOW HE GOT LAWRY. THE CATCH WAS TAKEN BY BARRINGTON.

    WHEN AUSTRALIA'S LAST TWO ACCREDITED BATSMEN WERE TOGETHER THEY WERE SIXTY-ONE FOR 4. BURGE WAS ONE OF THEM AND AGAIN FOR ENGLAND - BURGE WAS L.B.W. FOR 31. AND THEN ENGLAND DROPPED THE CATCH THAT COULD WELL COST THEM THE MATCH. SHARPE PUT DOWN STRAIGHT SLIP CATCH FROM THE EDGE OF BILL LAWRY'S BAT.

    SIMPSON PLAYED A REAL CAPTAIN'S INNING AS HE MOVED TOWARD HIS FIFTY.BUT NO SOONER HAD HE GOT THERE THAN HE WAS OUT AND AUSTRALIA'S INNINGS WERE AS GOOD AS OVER. THEY WERE DISMISSED FOR 168.

    ENGLAND OPENED WITH DEXTER AND TITMUS WHO SCORES 71 BETWEEN THEM. AS PLAY BEGINS AT 11 A.M. TODAY THERE'LL BE WEATHER PERMITTING - 21/2 HOURS CRICKET BEFORE LUNCH. THE MOST INTRICATE PROBLEM FACING DEXTER WILL BE THE TIMING OF HIS DECLARATION.
