THIRD VICTORY TEST RESULT NEVER IN DOUBT Rec. 11.5 a.m. LONDON, July 17. Australia won the third Victory Test at Lord's by fqur wickets, and now leads by two matches to one in the series. Freakish bowling by the spin bowler, Cristofani, soon ended England's second innings this morning. He took four of the five English wickets which fell for only 46 runs. Hammond, who was crippled with lumbago, was unable to bat. England's collapse left Australia needing 225 runs to win, and although the first wicket fell for none the result was never in doubt. A sound second wicket partnership by Sismey and Workman paved the way for success. Later, Hassett and Miller batted dashingly. Miller, despite a wrenched back, which prevented him from bowling to-day, rose to great heights. He swung the bat freely and treated Pollard, who was England's best bowler in the first innings, with disdain. The attendance to-day was 27,000. Scores:—England—First innings, 254. Second innings, 164 for nine wickets (Hutton 69; Miller three for 42, Cristofani five for 49, Ellis one for 29). Australia—First Innings, 194. Second innings, six for 225 (Workman 30, Sismey 51, Hassett 24, Miller not out 71; Edrich one for 37, Pollard two for 71, Wright two for 59, Roberts one for 24).
