"Boycott played slowly but looked secure.....caught, caught by Hughes and Boycott is out for forty-nine. England four for one hundred and six.
"In the first innings, Botham was the top scorer but not today. Caught, caught by yardley at third slip and Botham is out for seven. Five for one hundred and thirty.....
"With the game slipping away, Miller and taylor put on???one hundred and thirty-five. And the full toss is cracked through the covers. That's an easy one for Taylor. He'll get four out of that and the total moving up to one hundred and forty-eight.
"Hook shot, that's a good shot. He got right onto that. Perfectly times straight down to the ground.
"Another hook shot just wide of the fieldsman Carlson. That's going to be four more.....
"Full blooded shot, that's a nice looking cover drive....it's a beauty .....it's four runs.
