The scoreboard at the end of timeless test-SA vs England 5th test Durban 1939
The scoreboard at the end of timeless test-SA vs England 5th test Durban 1939
It began in warm sunshine on Friday, March 3, 1939, and ended in gloom and rain on Tuesday evening, March 14. Billed as a timeless Test, it was abandoned as a draw on the 10th playing day, with England, at 654 for 5, only 42 runs short of what would have been an incredible victory. Only Australia regularly staged timeless Tests in those days. But for the 1938-39 series, South Africa and England agreed that the fifth Test should be timeless if the rubber was level or one-up. England were one-up, having won the third Test in Durban by an innings. But no one expected the final Test to go beyond the fifth day. The England team were booked to leave Durban for Cape Town by night train on March 7, for the last tour match against Western Province, before sailing home in the mailship on March 17. An uncovered, iron-hard pitch, twice revived by heavy overnight or weekend rain, which rolled it out good as new, prolonged the timeless Test. By all precedents the match ought to have ended about the fifth day amid the ruins of a dusty and crumbling pitch. If the pitch was a batsman's paradise, it was a bowler's nightmare. The perspiring bowlers sent down 5447 deliveries, the equivalent of nearly eight one-day matches by today's standards. England's Hedley Verity bowled 766 balls, nearly a seventh of those delivered in the match. The new ball was taken 12 times. "Thinking back, my praise goes to the bowlers who toiled on that wicket," Springbok wicketkeeper Ronnie Grieveson told me in Johannesburg. Taking advantage of perfect conditions and the absence of urgency, the batsmen piled up a record aggregate of 1981 runs, notching six individual centuries. Runs came at a rate of 220 a day, rain washing out play entirely on the second Saturday. If the players didn't expect the match to last, the Imperial Airways (now British Air-ways) flying-boat crews had more faith. South African skipper Alan Melville gave his complimentary tickets to the crew turning round in Durban when the match began. They watched the first day's play and, on reaching Britain after a four-day flight across Africa and the Mediterranean, handed their tickets to the new crew flying south. They arrived another four days later, yet still in time to see the end of the match. Springbok Ken Viljoen was to remember it as the only time he needed two haircuts during a match. Australian experience showed that the side winning the toss in a timeless Test usually won the match. So there was undisguised delight on the Kingsmead banks and in the South African dressing room when Melville won the flip for the first time in the series. Giant-sized Pieter van der Bijl (father of Springbok and Middlesex fast bowler Vintcent van der Bill) set the pedestrian pace, taking 45 minutes to get off the mark, and batting through the first day for 105 not out. But even he was faster than the usually aggressive Dudley Nourse, who spent more than six hours compiling his 103, then the slowest Test century on record. "It was a timeless Test, with no need to get on with the scoring," Nourse told me in a chat shortly before his death. "My attitude was, the longer we batted the more runs we would score. That way we should probably win. So I felt they would just have to prise me out." The Springboks batted until Monday for their 530, and when England were dismissed for 316 on the Wednesday, a South African victory loomed. In their second knock the Springboks once again had a century opening stand, reaching 191 before Bruce Mitchell went, followed immediately by Eric Rowan. With the score still on 191, van der Bijl was involved in high drama. The ungainly opener, who had been battered mercilessly by speedster Ken Farnes, was on 97, within a boundary of becoming the first South African to score a century in each innings of a Test, when he spooned a simple catch to Eddie Paynter from a Doug Wright long-hop. His look of dejection as he plodded back to the pavilion is still remembered. Abiding memories of the match for Grieveson are his 75 in his maiden Test innings, his stumping Wally Hammond twice, the loyalty of his future wife in watching every ball bowled, "and Pieter's look when he missed his second century". A mid-innings collapse was averted by Melville and Viljoen, and when the final innings began on Thursday evening England were faced with the colossal target of 696 to win. The first England wicket fell at 78, just before lunch on Friday. Before that, Hammond took a bold decision. He promoted 22-year-old Bill Edrich, whose best score in his eight previous Tests was 28, from No. 6, to No. 3. Edrich told me on a visit to Johannesburg a few years before his death: "Wally Hammond came into the dressing-room and said jokingly: 'You're going No. 3 this because if you get a couple of hundred we might have a chance'." By stumps Edrich had made a century and England were fighting back. Rain on the second w

Delayed at OR Tambo International airport - The flight from Durban was indefinitely delayed. At least the flight from East London is still on-time. Probably as a result of the storm that broke out in Johannesburg around 16:00. The rain and strong winds literally came bucketing down. At one point it looked like it was going to hail. So there goes another 5 hour wait at the airport. I wish they had more couches.
