    DOWN CAME THE RAIN AT TRENT BRIDGE TODAY (TUESDAY) AND WASHED OUT ANY POSSIBILITY OF A DEFINITE DECISION IN THE FIRST TEST, WHICH ENDED WITH AUSTRALIA 40 FOR TWO IN RELY TO ENGLAND'S SECOND INNINGS DECLARED TOTAL OF 193 FOR NINE.

    ANY CHANCE ENGLAND HAD OF WINNING THE MATCH WAS DESTROYED WHEN THEY LOST DEXTER, TITMUS AND BARRINGTON FOR THE ADDITION OF ONLY 76 RUNS IN 95 MINUTES. ANY CHANGE AUSTRALIA HAD OF DISTINCTION FADED WHEN O'NEILL HAD TO RETIRE WITH A BRUISED RIGHT HAND INDEX FINGER AFTER SCORING 24 IN UNDER TWENTY MINUTES.

    DEXTER SOON WENT -BRILLIANTLY CAUGHT BY O'NEILL IN THE COVERS. BARRINGTON MADE 33 BEFORE HE WAS L.B.W. TO CORLING, THE BALL CUTTING BACK FROM THE OFF. PARKS WAS PREPARED TO SACRIFICE HIMSELF IN A DASH FOR RUNS. HE MADE 19 BEFORE BEING CAUGHT BY HAWKE AT LONG-ON OFF VEIVER. SHARPE WAS CAUGHT AND BOWLED BY VEIVERS, CHECKING A DRIVE, AND THEN COWDREY - WHO TOOK A LONG TIME TO MAKE 33 - WAS BOWLED BY MCKENZIE.

    BY LUNCH ALLEN HAD BEEN L.B.W. TO MCKENZIE. AT 186 FOR SEVEN, ENGLAND WERE 234 AHEAD, AND THERE WAS, IN THEORY,THREE AND A HALF HOURS TO PLAY. ENGLAND CONTINUED FOR A FURTHER SEVEN MINUTES DURING WHICH TIME TRUEMAN AND FLAVELL WERE BOTH OUT USING THE LONG HANDLE. WITH HE INJURED BOYCOTT READY TO BAT - BUT ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY THE INNINGS WAS DECLARED.

    IN WENT AUSTRALIA NEEDING A SCORE OF 75 RUNS AN HOUR TO WIN. LAWRY WAS EASILY RUN OUT WHEN HE TRIED FOR AN UNWISE SECOND RUN OFF HIS FOURTH BALL FROM TRUEMAN. REDPATH WAS CAUGHT BY PARKS OFF FLAVELL. AND THEN O'NEILL BECAME THE CENTRAL FIGURE. THE FIRST FOUR BALLS OF TRUEMAN'S SECOND OVER WERE ALL INTENDED BOUNCERS. O'NEILL, SURROUNDED BY SEVEN CLOSE FIELDER, HOOKED THEM ALL FOR FOUR WITH STROKES THAT WERE AS CRISP AS THEY WERE DARING. BUT HE WAS FORCED TO RETIRE AFTER BALLS FROM BOTH TRUEMAN AND FLAVELL RAPPED PAINFUL BLOWS ON HIS INDEX FINGER.

    THEN THE RAINS CAME. THE MATCH HAD TO BE ABANDONED JUST AS EVERYTHING SEEMED POISED FOR AN INTERESTING FINISH.
