    Background: IN THE FIFTH CRICKET TEST AT THE OVAL ENGLAND WAS THREE-HUNDRED-AND-THIRTY FOR SEVEN AT THE END OF THE SECOND DAY TODAY (FRIDAY), SIXTY-TWO AHEAD OF THE WEST INDIES' FIRST INNINGS SCORE.

    ENGLAND STARTED THE DAY CONFIDENTLY WITH BARBER AND EDRICH SCORING FREELY.

    WITH THE FIFTY UP FOR ENGLAND EDRICH SENT TWO SUCCESSIVE BALLS TO BE FIELDED BY BANDS OF SMALL BOYS BEHIND THE BOUNDARY LINE. BUT SOBERS WAS BOWLING DEFTLY, AND HENDRIKS AT THE WICKET HELD A CATCH FROM EDRICH WHO SCORED THIRTY-FIVE. ENGLAND WAS A HUNDRED AND THIRTY FOR FOUR WHEN WES HALL BOWLING THE LAST BALL BEFORE LUNCH HAD D'OLIVIERA FOR ONLY FOUR RUNS. BRIAN CLOSE WAS DISMISSED WITH BRILLIANT FIELDING BY HOLFORD FOR ONLY FOUR RUNS.

    ENGLAND FOUGHT BACK WITH SOME FINE BATTING BY GRAVENEY. IN FIVE HOURS AT THE WICKET HE MADE A HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO AND WAS STILL IN AT THE CLOSE OF PLAY.

    HE HAD A STEADY PARTNERSHIP WITH THE WICKETKEEPER MURRAY WHO WAS EIGHTY-ONE NOT OUT, HIS HIGHEST TEST SCORE.
