DIJNEDIN, March 6. The first test match between, the visiting Australians and iVew Zealand was commenced at noon to-day on the ■Carisbrook ground, which was sott and easy after the heavy rain of the previous day; but the out-field was rast and yielded its full quota of runs. The winning of the toss by Reese gave the New Zealanders the first choice and,the New Zealand captain decided to sand his team in to bat. The start was not very auspicious, the first wicket falling] for 18 runs. But' the next partnership carried the score to the half century mark, and with three wickets down for, 111 New Zealand may be said to have been in a good position. Armstrongwas bowling on the off theory, with an occasional straight one by way of variation, while Crawford Mas sending them! down with rare pace. The wicket was playing well, but the bowling was good and the batsmen found it difficult to score freely. Three , wickets fell quickly after the luncheon adjournment, and r five of the best New Zealand bats' were out for 126. Patrick, Sandman and Condliffe, however, compiled runs steadily and the second century was brought up after 155 minutes' play. Heavy rairj, which fell half an hour after the tea adjournment, brought about the cessation of play, and as there was no prospect of contimiing, 'stumps were drawn at 4.J0 p.m. for the day, -with New Zealand with nine wickets down for 218 runs. Batting was strictly orthodox, and was marked by careful play against good bowling by Armstrong and Crawiord, who bore the brunt of the attack. The Australian ground fielding was fair, and the throwing in was accurate. Armstrong missed two chances in the slips, but otherwise there / were no lapses.
