Cricket: England A take charge

England A . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .293

Western Australia . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .190-7

ENGLAND'S new generation of fast bowlers took control on the second day of their final tour match against a Western Australian XI in Perth yesterday.

Andy Caddick, Mark Ilott and Dominic Cork put England A into a strong position as the Australians struggled to 190 for 7 in reply to England's first innings of 293.

England A are planning to appeal against the Australian Cricket Board of Control's decision not to recognise last month's game against the Australian Cricket Academy in Melbourne as a first-class fixture. The decision means that the 123 of the England A captain, Martyn Moxon, against the ACT will not be his 34th first-class century and the Essex spinner, Peter Such, will be stripped of career-best figures of 7 for 82.
