  • Description

    Australia won the second Test against England by nine wickets with a day to spare in Perth, Western Australia, on Tuesday (17 December) -- despite a valiant rearguard action by 42-year-old Fred Titmus.

    England were all out for 293 runs in their second innings, leaving Australia to score only a nominal 21 runs. They got them in nearly even time for the loss of Wally Edwards, who was lbw to Geoff Arnold.

    The undoubted cricketer of the match was Australian Greg Chappell who caught Fred Titmus (off Mallett) at wide long-off -- his seventh catch of the match, and a test record for catches, other than for wicketkeepers. All the others were taken at second slip.

    Titmus was last man out for 61, his highest Test score against Australia. He batted for three-and-a-quarter hours to stem another collapse by England's top batsmen against Australia's pace attack.

    The Australian destroyer, as in the first innings, was fast bowler Jeff Thomson, who finished with five for 93, including three wickets in his first three overs when England resumed at 102 for one on Tuesday morning.
