  • Description

    ELEVEN FIT MEN MAKING BUT A SCRATCH TEAM TOOK THE FIELD FOR ENGLAND IN THE SECOND TEST MATCH IN BOMBAY YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY). THE REST OF THE TOURISTS ARE EITHER INJURED OR SICK.

    AN EXCITED CROWD GAVE THE FIRST DAY OF THE SECOND TEST AN TENSE ATMOSPHERE, ENCOURAGING THE ENGLAND TEAM TO GIVE A DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE. AT ONE TIME, ENGLAND'S ELEVEN FIT MEN HAD TAKEN SIX INDIAN WICKETS FOR 99 RUNS, MUCH AGAINST EXPECTATIONS.

    TWO TALENTED INDIAN BATSMEN THEN HELD OUT FOR THE LAST TWO-AND-A-HALF HOURS, ADDING 126 RUNS IN A RECORD SEVENTH-WICKET STAND. AT THE END OF THE DAY ENGLAND HAD HELD INDIA TO 225 RUNS FOR 6 WICKETS.

    DURING THE PLAY, SEVERAL ENGLAND FIELDERS BECAME UNWELL, AND STEWART LEFT THE PITCH: HE WAS REPLACED BY INDIA'S 12TH MAN, KRIPAL SINGH. BUT, IN SPITE OF THIS BLOW, THE UNBALANCED TEAM FOUGHT WELL, AND ALL-ROUNDER TITMUS TOGETHER WITH KNIGHT REFUSED TO BE SUBDUED. THEY ATTACKED TO GOOD EFFECT THE INDIAN BATSMEN ON A PITCH NOTORIOUSLY UNHELPFUL TO BOWLERS.

    WITH THE EARLY RECOVERY OF THE SICK MEMBERS OF THE TOURING PARTY UNLIKELY, THE MCC HAS TODAY (WEDNESDAY) SENT OUT 27-YEAR-OLD PETER PARFITT, THE MIDDLESSEX ALL-ROUNDER, TO REINFORCE THE TEAM.
