ASHBURTON CRICKET CLUB.

Notwithstanding a large increase in the number of playing members, the season 1879-80 has not been the most successful enjoyed by the Ashburton Cricket Club. This is probably partially attributable to the inferiority of the ground, and the fact of several prominent members having recently gi.cn up the game ; but we hope that there will be an active interest next season, and that Ashburton players will acquire the leading reputation they are certainly capable of earning. We give the batting averages for the season, from which it will be seen that Denshire takes first honors, with a well-deserved 14 T ; S. Saunders and Amos follow, having had a good deal of luck, and G. Andrews has played well throughout the season. Wo are unable to give the bowling averages, the records having been imperfectly kept ; but this department has much deteriorated. 6. Andrews has done best, and Ashwood and Westenra have occasionally trundled with some effect, but S. Saunders and Field, the mainstays of last season, have been all abroad. The fielding of A. Hooks, Hodder, Buchanan,

G. Andrews, Curtis, and some others has been exceptionally good.
