ASHBURTON V. TIMARU. A match between these two clubs took place on Thursday on the Domain ground, Ashburton. A very strong team had been selected to represent the local club, but at the last moment it was discovered that Grant, Anderson, Saunders, and Westenra could not take part in the game, and their places were filled by less experienced players. The Timaru club was also unfortunate, only eight players arriving to do battle on its account. Shortly after noon operations wore commenced by Timaru taking the field, and Hodder and Denshire going to the wickets for Ashburton. Neither of these usually reliable batsmen contributed anything considerable to the score, and Rooks and Andrews also failed to make a prolonged stay. Buchanan placed 22 to his credit by very good cricket, and Fagan and Groves obtained 13 and 10 respectively by hard, if not very scientific hitting. The bowling was straight but very simple, and with a better ground probably a much larger score would have been made. After lunch Timaru took an innings opposed to the bowling of Fagan and Andrews, but no stand was made, the total only reaching 19, or 57 behind that of their opponents. The bowling was good, Fagan being particularly distinctive. At half-past three Denshire and Hodder again appeared at the wickets, and the former gentleman commenced the best innings we ever saw played in the county. He compiled 55 by really good cricket, and perfectly at home with every description of bowling opposed to him ; his defence was very confident, and hitting clean and effective. Andrews also played a good useful innings, making 27. None of the other players reached double figures, but the substantial contributions of the two'gen tiemen referred to, brought the total up to 100. The second innings of Timaru, chiefly assisted by Jones (25), produced 49, leaving Ashburton victorious by 108 runs. The following is the score : Ashburton—lst innings.
