New Zealand.v. The World,
A very interesting one innings game was played in the Domain on Saturday afternoon between the native element in the two local clubs, against all comers, and resulted in a pretty close thing. The colonials unfortunately had to play without Westenra, who is always good for a score, and his want was felt in the trundling department, but Bruce howled well throughout the whole innings, S. Saunders and Albert Andrews doing the balance, while the World bad five bowlers to ring the changes on. Fourteen played on each side, and the ground being terribly lumpy, both bowlers and batters were bewildered at the erratic course the hall occasionally took. The batting of Lusk, Hodder, and Bruce for the Home team was deserving of commendation ; and S. Saunders, A. Fooks, and A. Andrews, from whom scores were expected, went out at a very early stage of their batting for 2,5, and 2 respectively. For the World, Denshire made a brilliant display of batting, although he gave a couple of chances during his innings, which wore declined. He went in first and kept his hat going until 8 of his confreres had been disposed of. Grant and Whitley both gave some exercise to the field. The fielding on both sides was for the most part slovenly, with a few exceptions. The following is the extended score : NEW ZEALAND. S.
