At the Adelaide Oval today a real crowd pleaser, in the last day's play between the MCG and Sough Australia. South Australia turned on a fine display of batting this morning, announcing their intention to retire at lunch, out or not. At lunch South Australia declared at nine wickets for six hundred and forty nine.....the highest score ever made by a state side against the MCC.
Only one incident has marred the match and that was the no-balling of MCC fast bowler John Snow. Snow was no-balled fifteen times in five overs by umpire Ron Roseph. Today Seven News Adelaide spoke to the NCC team manager, David Clarke, about the incident....
Earlier in the day we pick up play with Jenner facing Illingworth. This time Edritch was waiting. No run. ///
John Snow to Ashley mallett, but this time Mallett was wellin control. He snicks the ball wide of slips and Lever has to come around to collect.
Two runs for Mallett who made twenty eight today.
Snow to Mallett once again, now in crowd pleasing form. A beautiful drive to the covers sends Wilson on the run. With Jenner at the other end, this one got three more runs for South Australia, heading for a record performance.
Mallett's joy proved short lived, however, as Lever came on to replace John Snow. Mallett drove Lever firmly towards mid-off and made a quick single. However, Jenner stayed where he was and John Hampshire returned the ball to keeper KNOTT who whipped off the bails. Jenner at first decided he was out but the umpire called him back and sent Mallett back to the pavilion. Fine cricket at the Adelaide Oval today.
