CRICKET.

A match was played on the Domain ground on Saturday afternoon, some of the members as usual turning up considerably after the appointed time. We would again call the attention of players selected for matches to the necessity for punctuality, as many come a long distance, and others give their time at some sacrifice for the love of the game. It was expected from the start that the single men would win by a large majority, as the benedicts were principally made up from the muff division of the Club, G. Andrews and Denshire beingthe only two go >dall round men in the team. The latter was unlucky, as he was caught for 4 after a very short spell at the bat. G. Andrews put together 14 by steady play, and the rest of the game was simply a slaughter of the innocents—the total closing for 31. Bi uce and Westenra bowled well throughout. The Bachelors were for the’' most part unlucky, G. Andrew’s bowling being very destructive. Such good players amongst them us Westenra, Fooks. and Bruce had to retire without scoring, and Rudder and K Saunders were the only two who got into double figures. The second innings was . played in a drizzling shower, which rendered matters very disagreeable for the field, the ball being particularly difficult to handle. The Married side went in a second time ; but after a quarter of an hour’s play tho rain came down too heavily to continue the game, imd the stumps were drawn. One corner of the ground is now made use of by a number of ladies for lawn ten nis and croquet, and lias become a, centre of attraction for admirers of those games.
