    Background: THERE WAS SOME FINE AND EXCITING CRICKET TODAY (SATURDAY) AT LORDS WHEN THE LORDS TAVERNERS PLAYED OLD ENGLAND IN THEIR ANNUAL ONE-DAY FIXTURE. RAIN FINALLY BROUGHT THE MATCH TO A DRAW BUT NOT BEFORE THERE HAD BEEN SOME EXCITING CRICKET WITH THE LORDS TAVERNERS SCORING 305 IN 205 MINUTES -- SURRIDGE HITTING FIVE SIXES IN HIS UNBEATEN 51 IN 20 MINUTES. AND THE OLD ENGLAND TEAM SCORING 263 FOR SEVEN.

    THE RECENTLY-RETIRED EX-AUSTRALIAN SKIPPER RICHIE BENAUD SHARED A STAND WITH M.C.C. ASSISTANT SECRETARY DONALD CARR OF BRILLIANT BREVITY BEFORE CARR FELL TO LAKER FOR 29. DENNIS COMPTON, ARRIVING LATE HAVING MISTAKEN THE TIME, RAN ONTO THE FIELD TO CATCH BENAUD, OFF IKIN, FOR 26.

    IN CAME OLD ENGLAND WITH A FORMIDABLE TOTAL TO CHASE. THEY STARTED BADLY LOSING ROBERTSON TO ALF GOVER WITH ONLY 12 RUNS SCORED. BUT SIMPSON HELD HIS CREASE AND BUILT HIMSELF A SCORE OF 113. COMPTON, IN A STAND WITH SIMPSON, SHOWED SOME MAGNIFICENT STROKE PLAY, BUT HAD TO RETURN TO THE PAVILION WITH A SCORE OF 22.
