  • Description

    ENGLAND MADE A DOUBTFUL START IN THEIR TEST MATCH AGAINST NEW ZEALAND AT LORDS TODAY (THURSDAY) WHEN THEY WERE ALL OUT FOR 190 ON THE FIRST DAY OF PLAY. IT WAS THEIR LOWEST TOTAL AGAINST NEW ZEALAND SINCE WORLD WAR TWO.

    CAPTAIN ILLINGWORTH, WHO SCORED 53, WAS THE ONLY BATSMAN TO HANDLE THE BOWLING AT ALL SUCCESSFULLY.

    OPENER BOYCOTT WAS THE FIRST TO GO -- IN THE THIRD OVER. HIS CATCH TO CONGDON GAVE HIM HIS SECOND TEST DUCK RUNNING.

    NEXT TO GO WAS EDRICH. HE, TOO LOFTED ONE, AND THE SCORE WAS ONLY 27. HE WAS FOLLOWED SOON AFTER BY FLETCHER, WHO LOST HIS MIDDLE STUMP.

    SHARPE FACED UP TO TAYLOR -- AND HIS LOFTY HIT WAS SAFELY HELD BY TURNER.

    KNOTT, NORMALLY A COOL-HEADED BATSMAN IN A CRISIS, ALSO HIT UP A BALL FROM HADLEE. HADLEE, MOVED DOWN THE WICKET TO MAKE A SPECTACULAR CATCH AND CLAIM HIS FIRST TEST WICKET.

    KNIGHT HIT SEVERAL FOURS BEFORE HE FELL TO HOWARTH, CAUGHT HADLEE. ILLINGWORTH, AFTER HIS ENCOURAGING STAND, ALSO WAS CAUGHT, THIS TIME BY WADSWORTH, OFF HOWARTH.

    BAD LIGHT STOPPED PLAY WITH THE NEW ZEALANDERS AT FIVE FOR NO WICKET.
