    COMMENTATOR: "Underwood to Kent on 10. He is out, yes, brilliantly caught by Vivian Richards at short leg.



    Joel Garner to Greg Chappell on 35. It is in the air. He is out, brilliantly caught by Vivian Richards at cover point. A loose shot from Greg Chappell.



    Andy Roberts trapped Gilmour for 10. Gilmour is out... yes got a glove. Gilmour attempted to cut too close to his body and Andy Roberts dug that ball in.



    Marsh next to go off Procter for eight. And he is out. Is he? He is standing...given, given out...caught at slip by Lloyd.



    Four runs to Max Walker off Procter...beautiful shot. Superb cover drive by Max Walker. Four more to Walker... another fine shot from Walker. This is almost inspired batting. But Procter had his revenge on Walker. Bowled him...(INDISTINCT). A good delivery from Procter, sneaking through between bat and pad.



    Ray Bright...caught off Procter. And what a great catch. There have been some marvellous catching today, two by Viv Richards. Nothing you could see ever better than that by Alan Knott.



    The World XI...Barry Richards dropped by Laird. Oh dear. Down it went.



    Gilmour traps Fredericks for four. He is out, caught behind, a bottom edge. And that is a breakthrough the Australians needed.



    Gilmour to South African Barry Richards. There it goes. Beautiful square cut by Barry Richards. Short delivery.



    Shortly after, anti-apartheid supporters interrupted the match. For the first time in the match we have got interruptions. It seems to be a trend in modern cricket. A few local South Africans coming out to talk to the hero.



    Back to play...Greenidge out to Max Walker for 23.



    Gary Gilmour bowls Richards for 57. And bowled him...what a good delivery. To get through the defence of either of these two fellows is a great achievement. But that looked a superb ball."



    The first two day's play attracted a total crowd of about 27,500, indicating that Mr. Kerry Packer's brand of cricket is beginning at last to capture public imagination. Significantly, this is the first "Super Test" not to clash with an official test.

    Background: Cricket...and seam bowler Max Walker took seven wickets for 88 to give an Australian XI a 14-run first innings lead over the World XI on the third day (Monday) of their first World Series Cricket "super test". However, at close of play at Sydney Showground, the World XI had fought back to send the Australians crashing to 13 for two in their second innings. West Indian batsman Viv Richards was the only World player to look comfortable against Walker's steady bowling, scoring 119 in his side's total of 290. The World XI resumed at 199 for four, chasing the Australians' first innings total of 304 and found runs difficult to score. The second day's play on Sunday was interrupted briefly by anti-apartheid demonstrators who ran on to the field carrying banners. They shook their fists in the face of Barry Richards, the World XI's South African opening batsman. A report from Australia's TCN-9 described the match from midway through the Australian XI's first innings on the second day.
