CLEM HILL'S TRIBUTE TO HAMMOND Clem Hill regards the odds in Austra lia's1 favour. 'Hammond,' he says, 'is the nearest approach to the great est batsman that ever lived since Truui per. I take off my bat to him. for he belongs to the ranks of the greatest batsmen x-f all time. When ho improves on the on side he will bo the greatest ? batsman playing at present, and may el lipse Sutcliffe 's test record of 734 in one season in Australia. Blackie is the only -Xangcrous bowler and Australia 's field ? ing was not of the standard expected. After Richardson's first grcvious fail ure Ryder should have gone in himself.'
