The Victorian, Keith Miller, the hero of the Third Victory Test, has placed Australia in a sound position in the Fourth Victory Test with another splendid century. Three wickets had fallen for 108 when Miller joined Sismey and the pair had carried the score to 224 for three wickets when Sismey was forced' to retire hurt. He later resumed, but added only one more run to his score. Miller, after a slow start, played all the English bowlers with consummate ease. His century occupied 140 minutes and included nine boundaries. The Australian captain, H. L. Hassett, was out to a glorious catch when he appeared to be well. set. Whittington played his soundest innings of the series. Before lunch play was held up for half an hour by rain and stumps were drawn nearly an hour early because of a drizzle and bad light. To-day's play drew an attendance of 34,000, the biggest in the history of Lord's. Scores:—Australia: First innings, five for 273 (Whitington 46, Hassett 20, Sismey 59, Miller not out 107; Pope three for 71; Pollard two for 89).
