TRANSCRIPT: NEWSREADER: "Massie to Boycott, and the Englishman is well beaten to give Massie his first test wicket. From the other and Dennis Lilles bewls to Brian Luckhurst, with England 23 for one. Luckhrust is beaten all ends up by a beautiful bell and England are beginning to struggle. After lunch with Edrich also out Basil D'Oliviera played some glorious attacking strekes. Now it's Lillee's turn. But just as he was looking set ??? a really good score, D'Oliviera was out. Massie again, and there's no doubt about the umpire's decision. After a shaky start, Tony Greig also played some strong attacking cricket. Here he faces Gleeson. Greig reached his third successive test fifty in a stand of 96 with Alan Knett. But then Massie struck yet again. Knott edges, Colley takes the catch and England are 193 for six. Massie again to Greig. Keeper Marsh takes an easy catch and Greig's fine innings ends at 4."

Background: England wan the toss and elected to bat on the opening day of the second test between England and Australia being played at Lords Cricket Ground in London.
Here of the day was the Australian bowler, Bab Massie, playing in his first test match against England. He took five wickets during the first day's play and helped Australia held England to a score of 249 for seven at stumps.
The best batting display of the day came from Tony Greig--when scored fifty-four. It was his third half-century of the series: he was England's top scorer in both the first and second innings of the First Test.
