    Background: Cricket...and Australia's batsmen made a poor start against Guyana on the first day of their match in Georgetown on Saturday (25 Marcy). The Australian opening pair--Rick Darling and Graeme Wood are the youngest in Test history and have been tipped as rising superstars. But Wood was quickly bowled by Croft and at the end of the first day Australia declared at 361 for 6.

    SYNOPSIS: Croft to Darling at the start of play on Saturday. The Australian seemed at ease on the Georgetown pitch and hooked this one for a boundary.

    But his partner--the pair as inseparable off field as they would like to be on -- was less fortunate. This was the one that had him dismissed early in the innings.

    A disappointed Wood leaving for the pavilion -- with David Ogilvy in to replace him.

    Here's Hughes taking a square cut off a ball from Sew Shrivnarine. It's through the covers to bring the Australians to the 300 mark.

    Hughes at 40 runs, hitting a bouncer off Croft that nearly had him out. But Mohammed was not quite quick enough.

    Matthews to Hughes -- and the Australian is out LBW for 43; The Australians are 337 for 5 with Yallop having scored 110.

    But after such a fine innings pain and disappointment for the Australian batsman. Only ten minutes before stumps this attempt at a hook missed its mark, the ball hit Yallop's jaw and later doctors diagnosed a hairline fracture. The score -- 351 for 5.

    Croft to Rixon -- and the Australian is out for a duck on his first ball. Pydanna took the catch. The Australians put on another ten before close of play and then declared.
