    Background: A crowd of more than 10,000 watched today (Wednesday) as three-day match between an England Cricket X1 and the Rest of the World X1 opened at Scarborough in Yorkshire.

    F. J. Titmus leading the England X1 won the toss and sent the Rest of the World X1 in first, perhaps to take advantage of the morning moisture in the pitch, or to let the crowd see the stars bat. If the former, his plan foundered on poor slip fielding.

    E. J. Barlow of South Africa and S. M. Nurse of the West Indies put on 187 runs in a fast-scoring opening stand. Nurse should have been caught twice before he scored thirteen but it was not until Barlow had been caught by England's wicketkeeper for 97 that the partnership was broken. Nurse went on to score 121.

    After the tea interval Gary Sobers declared but not before he and fellow West Indian R. B. Kanhai had, together with South Africans J. D. Linsay, R.G. Pollock and K. C. Bland, made the final score 335.

    By close of play England had put on 25 runs for the loss of one wicket.
