    BY CLOSE OF PLAY, BOBBY SIMPSON AND BILL LAWRY, THE AUSTRALIAN OPENERS, HAD MADE 32 TOGETHER WITHOUT BEING SEPARATED TO BRING AN END TO A STARTLING DAY'S CRICKET.

    AFTER COMPILING A PLACID 70 FOR ONE WICKET BEFORE LUNCH, THE WEST INDIES LOST SIX MEN BETWEEN LUNCH AND TEA.WHEN THE INNINGS CLOSED AFTER 242 MINUTES, TONY WHITE, BATTING NO.8, WAS TOP SCORER WITH 57 NOT OUT.

    THE AUSTRALIAN BOWLERS SHARED THE WICKETS -- LAURIE MAYNE DID BEST WITH 4 WICKETS FOR 43 RUNS -- AND THEY WERE SUPERBLY SUPPORTED IN THE FIELD.
