    "Gooch was the first of four batsmen to fall for fifty runs......He's bowled him.



    "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.

    Background: English batsmen Geoff Miller and Bob Taylor hit their team out of trouble in the fifth test against Australia in Adelaide on Monday (29 January). Their seventh wicket partnership of one hundred and thirty-five was a great boost to England who had earlier been six wickets for one hundred and thirty-four in the second innings. In the first innings England had scored one hundred and sixty-none, while Australia could only knock up one hundred and sixty-four. With the highlights of Monday's play, here's the BBC's Michael Blakey and Norman May of the ABC.
