The Australian AC team, captained by WA’s Ian Dumergue, has beaten New Zealand in the second test in the MacRobertson Shield being held in the US. Australia also beat England in the first test and now meets the US in the final test. A win against the US will bring the Shield to Australia for the first time since 1935!
Australia has won the competition three times, in 1927-28, 1930 and 1935 (in each case the teams consisted of all Victorian players!) and has a 5-34 record (with 3 draws) against the English team.
