BILLY SMITH MAKING AN IMPACT DOWN UNDER

Bootle legend with England over 70's.

ENGLAND 70+  have so far recorded two wins out of four on their tour of Australia, losing the first test by 14 runs. In the third game against South Australia, Bootle's Billy Smith made an impact with both bat and ball. Keep going Billy. 

South Australia 127-5 (45 Overs) lost to England 70+ 128-4 (41 Overs) by 6 wickets

Mike Swain (Cpt) 34, Grahame Corke 2-18

South Australia batted first on a hot day in Adelaide on a pitch that proved difficult to score on with a slow outfield. Spindler again bowled well, this time with Corke, each only conceding 18 runs in 9 overs, with Spindler taking one wicket and Corke two.
Clarke and Smith also bowled tightly against the impressive Reid who retired on 50. A late flurry of runs took South Australia to 127 in 45 overs. England found runs just as difficult to score, and lost two wickets for 22 after 11 overs. and when Swain was out for 34 with the score on 74 the game was in the balance. Baxter was joined by Smith and the two then built a match winning partnership of 54 as they took the score past South Australia without further alarms.
