  • Description

    VIRTUALLY ALL HOPES OF BRITAIN REGAINING THE ASHES DISAPPEARED AT OLD TRAFFORD TODAY (FRIDAY) WHERE AUSTRALIA, 253 FOR 2 OVERNIGHT, WENT ON TO BUILD THERE TOTAL TO A MASSIVE 570 FOR FOUR WICKETS.

    BOBBY SIMPSON, THE AUSTRALIAN CAPTAIN, FINISHED THE DAY WITH AN UNBEATEN 265 WHICH BROUGHT HIM A DELUGE OF CRICKETING RECORDS. SIMPSON SO FAR HAS HIT 19 FOURS IN A STAY OF 12 HOURS - THE THIRD LONGEST INNINGS IN ALL CRICKET HISTORY, AND THE HIGHEST IN AN ENGLAND-AUSTRALIA SINCE SIR LEONARD'S RECORD 364 FOR ENGLAND IN 1938.

    SIR LEONARD BATTED FOR 800 MINUTES AND ONLY HANIF MOHAMMED WHO TOOK 973 MINUTES TO MAKE 337 FOR PAKISTAN AGAINST THE WEST INDIES AT BARBADOS IN 1957-58 HAS EVER STAYED AT THE CREASE LONGER.

    SIMPSON AND BRIAN BOOTH (82 NOT OUT) HAVE SO FAR PUT ON 188 FOR THE FIFTH WICKET IN 3 HOURS 20 MINUTES, GRINDING THE ENGLISH ATTACK INTO THE DUST.

    ENGLAND'S FIRST SUCCESS CAME WHEN JOHN PRICE YORKED NORMAN O'NEILL AT 47. A FASTER BALL WENT THROUGH HIS DEFENCE AND TOOK THE MIDDLE STUMP.

    THE SECOND WICKET OF THE DAY FELL WHEN BIG PETER BURGE, THREATENING, IT APPEARED, TO REPEAT HIS 160 PERFORMANCE AT LEEDS, WHIPPED TOM CARTWRIGHT TO LEG ONCE TOO OFTEN AND WAS CAUGHT BY PRICE STANDING FINE OF THE SQUARE-LEG UMPIRE. BURGE, OUT SHORTLY AFTER LUNCH, FELL FOR 34 WHEN THE SCORE WAS 382.

    ENGLAND'S NEW BOWLERS HAVE A SORRY LOOKING ANALYSES TONIGHT - JOHN PRICE ONE FOR 136; TOM CARTWRIGHT TWO FOR 118; FRED TITMUS AND JOHN MORTIMORE BOTH NOUGHT FOR 100; AND FRED RUMSEY NOUGHT FOR 84.
