Over 70s win second Ashes Test

Ken's bowling a winner

East Gosford’s Ken Campbell has starred in the Over 70s second Ashes Test against England’s veteran side at North Sydney.

Ken Campbell’s economical bowling, a miserly 28 runs conceded in 10 overs, helped steer Australia’s Over 70s cricketers to a crushing nine wicket victory against their English counterparts. The match was played on Thursday, October 29 at North Sydney Oval.

England were restricted to 207-4 in 50 overs before Australia rattled up 208-1 in 43.3 overs. Queenslanders Ross Chapman (93 not out) and Neville Kratzmann (87 not out) stroked the winning runs. After a narrow defeat in Brisbane, the veteran Aussies go to Canberra for the third and decisive Test.
