    Great Britain lost both their openers cheaply, but thoroughly dominated the remainder of their innings. Patsy Hendren and Frank Woolley put up an unbeaten 174-run partnership for the 4th wicket, coming off only 159 balls. Hendren went on to score his first century at the Olympics, and Great Britain's first since 1900.

    Things didn't get better for Chile with the bat. They seemed competent against the pace of Gilligan and Tate, but were left clueless by Tich Freeman's sharply turning legbreaks. Great Britain won by a huge 153-run margin.

    Canada's talented duo of Sandy Somerville and Arthur Inglis gave the Americans quite a pounding with the willow during their 126-run stand.

    The threat posed by Herbert Wookey was neutralized by Harry Kortlang, who went on to become the oldest centurion in Olympic history at the age of 44. The US skipper Christy Morris also chipped in with a half-century. The United States brought up their first Olympic victory since 1912, and avenged their quarter-final defeat of 1920 by knocking out their North American rivals from the 1924 Games.

    It was a bowler-friendly pitch and our batsmen batted really well to put up a good defendable total. A fantastic bowling by Sid Peglar to secure the match with 6 wickets under his belt.

    A good win in the end.

    That was a good outing against India for us. Our three seamers did get the early breakthroughs but somewhere in the middle we lost the steam. We should have been ruthless and pinned them down. Our team should learn it now that we are close to the test status.

    Given it is a lively wicket, I am tempted to get John in the side but I cannot drop a batsman because in case of close game, a batsman might make a difference. Small in at #6 for Hoad. Nunnes moves up a place.

    The United States will go into their match with the British unchanged, though we know the all-too-likely result.

    The Irish, also unchanged, should be a good shout to down the Windies

    Charles Macartney and Bill Ponsford steered the Australian innings on the right course after a difficult start at the top. The pair put on a big 170-run stand for the 3rd wicket while spending more than 37 overs at the crease. Both eventually fell to run outs on 92 and 78 respectively.

    [​IMG]

    New Zealand's Dan McBeath accounted for both Herbie Collins and Vic Richardson in an impressive spell of 2 for 27 from his 10-over quota.

    For a while, Tom Lowry made New Zealand dream of doing the impossible by beating their Trans-Tasman rivals, the world's greatest Test side.

    [​IMG]

    That dream was shattered by his former countryman Clarrie Grimmett, who had shifted his allegiance to Australian cricket since the previous Olympics. Grimmett stayed clear of Lowry's brutal counter-attack and dismissed Ces Dacre, Cyril Allcott and Herb McGirr in the penultimate over of the match, leaving Arthur Mailey to finish it off in the final over by bowling over New Zealand's final wicket. The Australians emerged victorious by 18 runs to progress to the semi-finals.
