    Thousands of cricket fans who flocked to the Perth Cricket Ground today expecting to see the type of Cricket that thrilled them on Saturday, were disappointed by dismal batting that resulted in only one-hundred-and-ten runs being scored for a whole day of cricket.

    Accurate bowling by the M.C.C. pinned down the Combined Australian side to one-hundred-and-one runs in just over five hours at the wicket.

    England came into bat with about forty minutes left to play after to combined side was all out for two-hundred-and-sixty.

    The M.C.C. opener, RICHARDSON, again failed to settle down and was bowled by STRAUSS caught VERNON for five and at stumps England was one for nine.

    The New South Wales batsman, O'NIELL, added to his overnight score of eighty to register the first century against the M.C.C. this tour. He made one-hundred-and-four before been bowled LAKER, caught COWDREY.

    LOADER took four of the combined side wickets today and finished with the figures of four for fifty-six.

    MILTON, three not out, and TRUEMAN, yet to score, will resume batting for the M.C.C. in the morning.
