Our stars from the mail special representative Johannesburg saturday. Thanks to magnificent Bowling by o Reilly he took five for 20 off 21 overs and a scintillating Cen Tury by Fingleton Australia after losing the toss is already in a secure position in the fourth test.

Australia passed their score with one wicket Down. Ideal weather greeted the Start of the test Wade and Richardson the rival Skippers were cheered by a crowd of 2000 which after lunch had grown to 10.000. When they emerged from the Pavilion to inspect the wicket before tossing. Wade spun a Brand new half Crown. Richardson called Heads and for the third time in the present series of tests lost. With Down turned thumbs Richard son indicated to his colleagues that they bad to Field first the teams were Aust Raja South Africa Richardson a Flag Eten Siedle brawn Viljoen Darling no Bieche o Brien la Agmi chop Perfield off Eben old Lem Nypen o Reilly Nic Hoheb Grummett Balaam a Mccormick dates Barrett 12th Rowan 12th hectic opening As usual Siedle and Wade opened the i titling and Mccormick and Mccabe were Australia s first bowlers. Mccormick s length in the first Over was erratic and seven runs came from it including a glorious Square Cut by Siedle that studded to the Boundary. Pacing Mccabe.

He followed them with a hard cover drive which raced Brown to the Boundary. Runs continued to come at the rate of two a minute As the batsmen found the Boundary. Siedle combining perfect footwork with excellent timing leg glanced Mccormick to the Boun Dary but Mccabe s fourth o4rer was a Maiden. Nevertheless 50 came up in the first hectic 25 minutes. Chances missed continuing to hit hard and often Siedle skied a fast rising Ball Over Mccormick s head but the Bowler did not appear to Realise How close the bail was to him. As it was it fell harm Lessly behind him with Darling making a desperate attempt to get at it. Siedle was then 25 and Wade 22 and the score none for 52. When a further four bad been scored from the fast men. Grimmett and o Reilly took Over from Mccormick 0 for 30 and Mccabe 0 for 18and the old Duel from which in previous tests the spin bowlers had emerged victorious was on again. O Reilly opened with a Maiden to Wade and it was evident that the and vent of the slow men was causing the batsmen to be watchful. O Reilly s leg trap was a Dot turning Factor but Wade once lashed out so lustily that Richard son at silly leg had a narrow escape from serious injury. Siedle took six from one Over by Grimmett including a clinking shot to the Fine leg Boundary and then cracked another to the on Boundary. Once again the batsmen were beating the Dock. The australian Fielding now began to weaken under the battering it was receiving and when Siedle had scored 42, he lifted a Ball from o Reilly to deep Square leg where o Brien failed to hold an Ordinary catch. Two runs later Siedle was out leg before to Grimmet after a great 66 minute Knock for 44. Wade was then 31.

He returned a few minutes later with the Finger bandaged but did not reveal his customary sureness when he resumed. Wade with a Well timed shot got Grimmett away to the Square leg Boun Dary but facing Mccormick in the next Over was bowled by one of those rare deliveries which keep wicket High. Wade appeared to have touched the Ball his 39 took 70 Man frs and like Siedle s innings included five fours.

O Reilly and Grimmett resumed to Viljoen and Mitchell. Mhm�t1. After a single from o Reilly banged grim Mett through the covers to the Boun Dary. Viljoen twice penetrated of Reify a leg trap each time taking a couple. Then facing o Reilly in his third Over he was beaten by a similar Ball to that which dismissed Harvey and it took his off stump. His 33 had takers Only 42 minutes and he hit four Boun Daries. Appreciating Langton s reputation for Firce hitting Richardson and Fingle ton. Two of the leg trap Fields men conveniently retreated several Yards when the newcomer faced o Reilly. Mitchell again got Grimmett away to the cover Boundary taut smart Fielding by o Reilly at mid on and Darling at Square leg prevented Mitchell taking More runs from that Over. Langton was seen in the unusual role of a stonewalled and helped o Reilly to bowl three Maidens in succession before opening Bis account with a couple to the off after 20 minutes at the wickets. Langton curiously enough never directed a Ball towards the trap and eventually Richardson abandoned it but replaced it when Mitchell faced score Board South Africa ? first innings Siedle b.

Langton sent up 152 in 140 minutes. Decision hooted Langton owed his dismissal to the fact that he was not playing his not 11 game. He was too cautious until a straight Ball from o Reilly found his pads obstructing the wicket with the slow bowlers on top South Africa was struggling desperately for runs with Mitchell bravely holding the fort against o Reilly and Grimmett who were both deadly accurate. A remarkable incident occurred when Grimmett bowled a Bell to Nicholson who chopped it Oldfield was seen to step aside to the off and the Ball was lying on the ground Nicholson apparently thought that the Ball had rebounded off the wicket keeper s pads and did not move. Oldfield appealed the Square leg Umpire we gave is Dee Telen. Then he appealed to the Ether pm pure who gave Nicholson at bowled.

Fingleton and Brown opened Australia s innings to the Bowling of Davies and Langton.

With Balaskas on to place of Lang ton at 18 the first Maiden of the australian innings was bowled to Brown. Fingleton however Square Cut Davies to the Boundary and Brown swept him to the leg Boundary in the same Over. Fingleton was in Fine dashing mood and Square Cut a four from the first Ball of Bala iras second Over and repeating the stroke with the last Ball collected 36 after Only half an hour at the creases.

Fingleton who was scoring twice As fast As his partner at 49 survived a confident a peal for leg before off Langton. Witt a single to Point Fingleton reached 50 in 54 minutes. Brown being 26. Langton employed a leg trap but it was almost useless against Brown whose playing was so perfect that the Fields men had Little Chance of checking the flow of runs. Brown was out when he stepped in front of his wicket and was beaten by the Pace of the Ball. His 34 took 74 minutes. The Side s 100 came up a minute later. W.

If further proof was needed to prove that South Africa cannot beat austra a with negative tactics today s Cricket Suo lied it in the first half hour Wade and Siedle brilliantly scored 60 runs off Mccormick and Mccabe. During that period Mccormick bowled remarkably Well but Siedle and Wade appeared determined to show the Public that it was possible to punish the australian attack. Then came Grimmett and o reply who previously had been lurking in ostentatiously in the covers and the South africans crumpled up like snails before a Shower of Salt Richardson showed a masterful piece of captaincy when he compelled Nourse who plays alow Bowling with Confidence to face Mccormick directly he arrived at the batting crease.
