Act 6: In Which The Sun Always Shines

Test 908: England v Australia at The Oval, Aug 27th-Sep 1st 1981.
Match Drawn

The sun always shines at the Oval,And
The summer in golden repose,
The evening still light, and the days are still bright,
As expectation grows.

The sun always shines at the Oval,
It dried out the track for the bats,
This memorable tie was now dead as a contest,
And more of a record of stats.

Border’s 100 and Boycott’s 100,
And Lillee’s seven for,
And Wellham’s 100, and Botham’s six,
And countless others more.

The sun always shines on the Oval,
On Botham, on England, on all,
The sun always shines on the Oval,
On the greatest test series of all?
