Background: INTRODUCTION: Cricket...and there's been play to match the occasion on the second day of the centenary test match between Australia and England at Melbourne on Sunday (13 March). After England's jubilation about dismissing Australia for a paltry 138 on the first day, Australia dramatically turned the tables. Fast bowlers Dennis Lillee with 6-26 and Max Walker tore the heart out of the English batting. Backed up by some splendid close fielding -- eight Englishmen were caught behind the wicket on the offside -- Australia dismissed England for 95. When Australia batted again, Chris Old struck some early blows for England -- having Australia 53-3 when he bowled Australian captain Greg Chappell, but Ian Davis 45 not out and Doug Walters 32 not out saw Australia through to 104-3 -- a lead of 147 and an extremely strong position in the game. The only amusement for English supporters during the day came when a rabbit ran around the perimeter fence. Commentators Norman May, Paul Sheahan and Jim Laker take up the day's play starting with the first English wicket to fall -- opener Mike Brearley's.
