    Background: England were soundly beaten in the Fourth Test Match at adelaide Australia, Feb 4 and the Ashes passed to Australia for the first time since 1952 -n when Len Hutton captained England to victory.

    Faced by the Australian first innings' total of 476, England opened on the third day of the Fourth Test, Feb 2 with Richardson and Bailey. Within minutes their scores was 11 for 2. The openers had returned to the pavilion with 4 apiece. May battled on with Colin Cowdray.

    Lindwall making a come-back for this match, 1bw-ed Richardson and Davidson bowled Bailey. May was out before the end of the day for 37. Score - 74 for 3. Cowdray was joined by Graveney.

    Between them they pushed the score to 115 for 3 by the time stumps were drawn. Cowdray did all the work, finishing the day with 53 Graveney had managed to score 1.

    Pre-lunch play the following day Feb 3, saw England make a recovery losing only one wicket for 150 runs. Within fifty minutes after lunch there was a collapse, from 170 for 3 to 188 for 9 - six wickets falling for 18 runs.

    The last wicket that of Evans, fell 52 runs later - Statham making wonderful rear-guard stand of 36 not out. Total score was 240.

    England followed on with a deficit of 236 runs, Watson and Richardson opening. They scored 10 and 28 respectively before stumps were drawn. England had 43 for nought on the board, ten second innings standing and a deficit of 193. They had a chance but the next day's play, the last, proved fatal. Australia winning the match by ten wickets, the rubber by three games to nil and the Ashes.
