Who is he? Answer in tomorrow's issue.======================================================================MILLER SHOCK SELECTION FOR AUSTRALIA
Thirty-four year-old Colin Miller is the surprise inclusion in Australia'sfourteen man squad for the tour of Pakistan in September and October. Theteam was announced today by Australian Cricket Board CEO Malcolm Speed,and will arrive in Pakistan on September 23 for a three-Test tour.The uncapped Miller, who is the oldest player in the squad, was theleading wicket-taker in the 1997-98 Australian first-class season playingfor Tasmania. His versatility in being able to take the new ball, andthen switch to off-spin later in the innings, has captured the eye ofAustralian selectors.Justin Langer, who has been in great form for Middlesex during the countyseason, replaces Greg Blewett, while Glenn McGrath, who plays his firstcompetitive match in six months in the Princess Diana memorial thisSaturday, returns to the Test squad. With Shane Warne unavailable as herecovers from a shoulder reconstruction, Gavin Robertson, with three Testsagainst India under his belt, is Australia's senior spin bowler.For Australia, this tour is sandwiched between the Commonwealth Games inMalaysia and the ICC Knock-out Tournament in Bangladesh. After the ICCseries the one-day squad will return to Pakistan for three limited-overinternationals before flying back to Australia just in time for the Ashesseries against England.The dates and venues for the tour have yet to be finalised. TheAustralian officials are concerned at the allocation of a Test match toPeshawar, which they consider is not of international standard, and thefailure to allocate a match to Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.The squad is:Mark Taylor (capt), Steve Waugh (vice capt), Damien Fleming, Ian Healy,Michael Kasprowicz, Justin Langer, Darren Lehmann, Stuart MacGill, GlennMcGrath, Colin Miller, Ricky Ponting, Gavin Robertson, Michael Slater,Mark Waugh.==============================================================DURHAM BOUNCE BACK AGAINST SOUTH AFRICASouth Africa are in front, but not in a comfortable position, after thesecond day of their three-day tour match against Durham at RiversideStadium, Chester-le-Street.After scoring 362 for 3 declared on Tuesday, including Cullinan's unbeaten200, the Proteas dismissed the home side for 286 yesterday. Pat Symcoxtook 5/60 to register his first-ever five-wicket haul for his country infirst-class matches. Durham's total could have been less if it were notfor the 58 no-balls conceded by the South African bowlers, Hayward bowling15 (worth 30 runs) in his twelve overs. The highest innings off the batwas Michael Gough's 39.In the 21 overs before the end of the second day, South Africa lost fourwickets in scoring 49 runs, Liebenberg (25*) and Cronje (11*) being at thecrease at the close. With a difference of only 125 with six wickets inhand, Durham will be looking for quick wickets in a bid to set a winnabletarget for themselves. Durham are eligible for an 11,000 pounds bonusfrom tour sponsors Vodafone if they can win this match.Scorecard:http://www-usa.cricket.org/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/1998/RSA_IN_ENG/SCORECARDS/R

Seam bowler Matthew Bulbeck was theleading wicket-taker with 3 for 20. Tillekaratne top scored with 35 notout, but there was controversy over Jayasuriya's dismissal on Tuesdayevening. Jayasuriya was given out hit wicket for no score, however heclaimed that he had not touched the wicket when the leg bail wasdislodged.Jayasuriya fell early again in the second innings, leg before to Bulbeckfor four. After Tillekeratne joined Arnold at 127 for 3 for his secondknock of the day, the tourists left the field at day's end on 243 for 3,seven runs in credit.
