ASHBURTON FIFTEEN v. AUCKLAND ELEVEN.

The match between an Ashburton Pif- £■ teen and the Auckland Eleven, travelling---i----through the South, was commenced on the Domain ground this forenoon. Arriving by the early train, the visitors wer«;[i’/ met on the platform by the local men, byi-aq whom they were accompanied to ' the -* ground. Ashburton won the teas, and elected to go in. The match was played, n> on.cocoanut matting. Dufauragain took his place in the Auckland team, Tate* ” standing out. A. B. Whitaker acted umpire for Auckland, and W. H. Atack’ for Ashburton, W. P. Reeves and D. Thomas represented Ashburton at ,the wickets, facing the bowling of Bucklahd' 1 and Dufaur. Reeves out Buokland’a first for a single, and Thomas might have scored but Reeves would not r«£ 1 r spond to the call. He, put the last of the over to leg^for;" a single. A bye came off Dufaur’s second' ball, and the next took Reeves’ wicket, .1. the ball cannoning from his pad, I—l—3. A. Castelli went in,, and after assisting Thomas to run a single, was bowled "by well-pitched one from Buokland, on which he did not play quick enough, 2—o—4. Simpson filled the vacancy, and played the remainder of the over without scoring. - His stay was, however, very short. Thomas played one of Dufaur’s next over jto leg, and Simpson, calling, ran to tho ; f; other wicket. Thomas did not, however, stir out of his crease, and the ball being quickly returned to the other end* Simpson was at the mercy of Dufaur,. and ,wm ; ,■ accordingly run out, 3—o—4. Wilding replaced him, and got Buckland’s second, ban to lag for a single, and followed it by cutting Dufaur through Buckland’s legs for two. Play was very slow, notwithstanding that the bowling had a good" ' .pitch. Buokland sent down a maiden from the upper end, Thomaa playing it very carefully. Wilding put Dufaur prettily away to long-leg, but smart fielding by.- , Arneil confined the scoring off it to couple. Buokland had another maiden re- ' corded to his credit, and Gardiner missing; A one of Daufaur’?, three were called for byes. The telegraph showed only ten runs for nearly half-an-hour’s play. Thomas got Dufaur neatly away to longleg for two, and again Arneil fielded smartly, almost running the batsmanoat..'..:; Wilding drove Buokland past the bowler ; for a single, and similarly operated on, ; Dufaur. Wilding opened his shoulders t* Buckland, and drove him prettily to on ft and off, but good fielding prevented scoring from the hits. Dufaur again sent,; r up a maiden to Thomas, who appeared, to, rn be most stubborn, and played carefully for his few runs. The first of Buckland’a

next over was sent away by Wilding long-leg for a couple, and a stolen 1 ' single to mid-oa brought this batsman into double figures. Aruiel relieved Dufaur as bowler at the lower end, and Wilding drove the last of his first overs to leg for a single. Twenty nowi'j appeared on the telegraph. Wilding again i. drove one of Buckland’s past the bowler, •' and near the boundary line, but only got a single, and Thomas stole another single 'T from a short-on hit. Thomas then tua one for a short-off, and would doubtless " have been run out had O’Brien not mulled J the ball. Buckland started bowling round the wicket, and Wilding drove his third | for two. The same batsman cut Buck- ' land’s next, and Thomas called. Lankham * returned the ball quickly, and Thomas’ bails were removed by Testro, 4—6 —26. ’' l Raine took his place, and Wilding drove * Arniel out of bounds for three. Another bye was added to the score, and Raine re- ’ tired, unsuccessfully attempting to cut one of Buckland’s, 5—0—30. Denshire,' * 1 the Ashburton captain, came to the rescue, but w. s a forlorn hope. Playing the second ball, from Buckland,hit his f wicket, and the ball also found its way into his stumps, so that he was doubly out,' = 6—0—30. Maud followed, and having * assisted Wilding to a single, played the ' remainder of Arniel’s over. Wild-’

ing drove Buckland grandly to off,‘and Dufaur, fielding splendidly, returned the ball before he could score, Buckland ' registered another' maiden, and Maude departed, “ yorked ” by Arneil,? —0- -St.' Pixloy replaced hjm, and only remained long enough to run for a’ leg-bye—a' “ yorker ” from Buckland despatched him, the attempt to play back to it being scarcely successful enough to stop it, 8—0—32. Fooks, the next m.vn, managed to negotiate the remainder of the over safely, and Wilding drove Arneil to off for a single, and brought - his score up to 20. A pretty drive off Buckland by Wilding produced two, and another fine off hit added anotlur brace. irneil sent up a maiden, and Wilding again got Buckland to on for 1. Fooks put Buck- ■ land up at mid-on, but, fortunately foe him, there was no .field there, and this telegraph showed 40. Another maiden was recorded to Arneil, and rdr lieved Buckland. Wilding snicked fifa, third fori, and Fooks finished the ovei. The third successive maiden was recorded. : to Ar eil; Fooks played Lankham ;i prettily to off for 2. Wilding again drove , Arneil grandly, but Robinson the ball near the boundary and con* < fined the score to a single. Another single off La ’kham, brought Wilding’s ■ Score up to thirty. He then played

neil to leg for one, and Fooks got the hame> bowler to long-field for two. Both batsmen .now appeared to be well set, and were playing pretty cricket. Wilding cut Arneil for two, and Fooks added a single to his spore by a very pretty leg hit off Lankbam. Things were looking much

brighter for Ashburton by this time. Wilding drove Arneil prettily for two, and singles came at both ends. Wilding gave a chance in the slips off Arneil, but it was

missed by Gill Fooks got another single, and Wilding played Arnsil prettily to leg for two, bringing his score into the forties.

Robinson took the ball at the lower end, and Wilding placed his first in the slips for 1, the telegraph board showing 60 t The change of bowling proved judicious,, for Fooks played the second ball sofUy Into the bowler’s hands, 9—6—GO. Andrews filled the vacancy, and Wilding by-another pretty draw to leg off Lankham added 2to his score. A hit by Andrews brought up 2 more, but the batsman narrowly escaped being run out. Andrews drove the next ball for a single, and-slipped Lankbam for 1, the ball going between Gill’s legs. Letting out at Robinson, the same player next put the ball . almost cut. of bounds for 2. Then came 4 byes in Robinson’s next over, the longstop ; fielding in the slips. Andrews gave Barton a chance at Jong-on off Lankham, but it was not held. The telegraph board

showed 70. Another chance was given by Andrews at long-on, and this time held by 'Buckland, 10—7 —72. Strachey filled tha vacancy, and getting Lankham to leg, seeped a single. He then put Robinson ne»r |he long-field boundary for two, and golMl'e same bowler to on for a single. Wilding now scored for the first time for abont'half an hour, driving Robinson into th£bonndary for three, O’Brien missing it Mdiy in the field. The telegraph now showed eighty. Wilding got another arid Strachey put Lankham out of bo|hdSs at long-field for three. Robinson, who Jpid.been proving rather an expensive bofcjef, at last got Strachey’s wicket in- r <jhe next ball,. 31—11 Bixsbanan then went in, and Gill took

at the upper end. The new mah-g6t a single, and Wilding scored two off first over, and an adjournment was then made for lunch, the score being 90 tuns for the loss of eleven wickets. After three-quarters of an hour’s interval, play was resumed at 2.16, R >binson bowling froth the lower end. Buchanan might have) been stumped off the first ball, but his-career anyway was short. Playing bach to the next ball he hit his wicket, 12 —l—9o. Curtis was the incomer, and Gill bowled from the upper end. His second ball was cut by Wilding for a single, and {three came from byes, Robinson was,! now bowling remarkably well, sending up some very dodgy ones. Curtis

played him to off for a single, and Gi&aent down a maiden. Wilding drove Robinson for two, and Curtis got another angle from Gil], and another single by WMding off Gill brought 100 up, the spectators applauding loudly. Wilding again' got Robinson to leg for one, and followed suit on Gill. Curtis finished the ovet .^y'converting the fifth ball into a single in the slips. Driving Robinson to leg l}e got two more, and followed it with a single off the same bowler. Barton replaoed Gill, and tbe field was placed for catches. The first over added a single to Curtis? score, the batsman poking it off his wicket. The same batsman hit one of ■' Robinson’s over the howler’s

head for two, and followed it up by geting him to leg for 2, placing himself in double figures, and bringing llOup. Wilding added another, and cutting Lankham, who had gone on at the lower end, got 3, including 1 from an overthrow. The wicket keeper had repeated chances of stumping both men, but failed at each attempt. Wilding put 1 off Barton over ths bowlers head for 2 2 more were run,*when Curtis was given out leg before wicket, 13 —11 kitfg, the last man, got Barton prettily away to longdeg for 2, and Wilding got a single by drawing,, Lankham prettily to leg, and . another by a drive off Barton. A sipgle .was stolen by'.Wiiding, and Hoskii^;BUccumbtd to a fine ball from Lankham/ 14—2 —124. Wilding, who had ployed a grand innings and thoroughly soda cricket for 66. carried out his bat. and

Barton got Wilding to long-leg again fora single, and Robinson put one apjat square-leg, but too safe for a chance.

He then got a leg single off the last of I Wilding's over. One was then stolen by Robinson off the third of Simpson’s next '’over, and Barton' cut the' same bowUr for 2. Robinson again added 2 to his score by placing Wilding in the slip*, and singles came at each end, the tatsihen .running them well.

logs for 1. The i ext hit was better fielded, and scoring prevented. Barlowcut Hosking prettily towards the pavilion, and 3 being run, 70 came up on the telegraph. Another beautiful cut by Barton off Reeves was fielded close to the boundary line, and returned sharply, 1 being run.

Arneil got Hosking well to square leg, and the ball being badly fielded by Buchanan, 2 were easily obtained. The Scoring was still rapid, and it is a noticeable fact that up to this time only two maidens had been bowled. Arneil, who had taken a good while to become set on the cocoa-nut wicket, began to bat more freely, and getting Reeves splendidly to square leg for 3, brought 80 up, while Arneil lifted the last of this over away to deep field for 3. Again one of the field —this time Curtis- opened his legs to allow one of Arneil’s cuts to pass through, and two more came up.

One came from a bye, and Arneil cut Reeves prettily for 1. Barton followed suit, and Arneil running out Roeves, nearly missed, but got a flukey one. Castelli took the bewling at the

upper end, and his first over was a maiden, Arueil playing it. 2 were run for byes, and there was only ten minutes left in which to get the remaining five. There was still a good prospect of a drawn match. 3 singles came from Andrewes in quick succession, and there were still 2 more to get. Arniel got the winning hit of 2, and put the next to leg for 2. Simpson took the over at the lower end, and Arniel put him out of bounds for 3.
