    THEN A QUICK SINGLE OFF A BALL FROM PITHEY BROUGHT UP BENAUD'S CENTURY...HIS TWENTIETH IN FIRST CLASS CRICKET.

    THE PARTNERSHIP OF MORE THAN TWO-HUNDRED RUNS GAVE AUSTRALIA A SPORTING CHANCE OF VICTORY.SIMPSON HIT TWENTY-THREE FOURS IN HIS INNINGS OF TWO-HUNDRED-AND-FORTY-SIX.

    HALSE TO BECKER, WHO IS OUT FOR FOUR.

    AS THE GAME DREW TO A CLOSE IT WAS INEVITABLE THAT AUSTRALIA COULD ONLY DRAW WITH SOUTH AFRICA.THE DISMISSAL OF SIMPSON FIVE MINUTES BEFORE THE END OF PLAY VIRTUALLY ENDED THE COMBINED ELEVEN'S HOPE OF VICTORY.
