Cricket-and Australia came back in the second-day's pay against the M.C.C. at Lords in London?
Cricket-and Australia came back in the second-day's pay against the M.C.C. at Lords in London on Thursday (26 May) to dismiss them for 136, with six wickets falling for 66 in 90 minute. The MCC took the lead on the first day when they put the Australians out for 194 and replied with 70 for three.
SYNOPSIS: The M.C.C.'s top scorer on the second day was Derek Randall with 50, facing feared fast bowler Jeff Thomson for much of the time.
Randall showed the style which helped him to his memorable century in the centenary test against Australia in Melbourne in March.
But Thomson, bowling at about his top speed, eventually got Randall LBW.
However, Thomson was still having his usual trouble with his run-up-by now being no stranger to a "no-ball".
Thomson struck again 20 minutes later when he dismissed Peter Willey for four.
The M.C.C. innings ended when Jones was caught by Thomson off spinner O-Keefe.
Australian captain Greg Chappell played a significant part in building his team's second innings score.
Partnered for a while by Rick McCosker, Chappell looked in fine form-hitting the ball all over the ground.
But he eventually fell to a brilliant catch after knocking up 44.
