    THIS FILM INCLUDES A COMMENTARY IN ENGLISH BY AN A.B.C. COMMENTATOR. A CUES TRANSCRIPT IS GIVEN BELOW FOR GUIDANCE.



    "Greig off the mark, Edwards can't save it at point ... a beautiful square cut by Greig. Chasing it around the boundary is Redpath, but he couldn't save it and it's across the line for four off the first ball of the day. If you take the four, it's one for 106.



    "That's Walker down at fine leg as Thomson bowls to Greig ... Up! And he's caught by Greg Chappell at second slip. Greig is out.



    "Great. And he's caught by Redpath at fourth slip. Denness is out.



    "Fletcher to face Thomson. Appeal for a catch ... is he out? Yes, he's out and Thomson's on a hat trick.



    "Just beaten, and inside the bat ... between bat and pad, a good ball by Thomson.



    "Again it's in the air ... and it could be six. Tremendous hit, it's right over the top. What a shot. No doubt in my mind ... the umpire hasn't ... yes, it's six.



    "Titmus goes for a lost one. Greg Chappell getting under it, he takes the catch and Greg Chappell breaks the Test record. He's taken his seventh catch in this Test, and that's an all-time record and England are all out for 293."

    Background: 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.
