When Keith Miller was frightened by an English fast bowler

Australia were blown away by Frank Tyson in the 3rd Test of the 1954-55 series, played at Melbourne. 

When Keith Miller came in to bat in the 2nd innings with the side 3 for 77, chasing 240, he greeted Godfrey Evans, the England wicketkeeper. Evans too greeted him.

Then Miller said, "I hope that bastard (Tyson) comes off soon".

Tyson eventually dismissed Miller soon and picked up 7 for 27 to dismiss the Aussies for 111.
