In the second innings of England against New South Wales Mason and Maclaren were the first to battle for England, but the former was early dismissed by a trimmer from Noble. Eanjitsiuhji was next. Noble was bowling a fine length and got a. good deal of work on the ball. The newcomer rattled up his runs very quickly by fine late cuts, while his partner was scoring freely by driving, boundary after boundary hits being registered. Howell relieved M'Kibbin, and Couingham took Noble’s end until after lunch, when the colt resumed. Ranji delighted the spectators with his graceful strokes. Both batsmen did what they pleased with the bowling, which was not too good. M’Kibbin then again went on in place of Howell, the score being 120, but the change had no effect in keeping down the runs. Maolaren was hitting very freely—so much so that he managed to break his bat. Ranji, too, was not idle, aud placed the ball splendidly. A double change was then made, Trumper being given a trial at M'Kibbia’s end, while Noble gave way to Conningham. With his score at 94 Maclaren had a life from M'Kibbin, who failed to hold a catch. Trumper’s bowling was too expensive, and Noble relieved him. Maclaren took advantage of the change to bring up his century. He then broke his second bat. The new willow was evidently unlucky, Noble gaining his wicket first ball. Hayward joined the Prince, who was piling up runs with great hits to the fence, and a few minutes after Maclareu’s dismissal he recorded hia century. Several boundary hits brought the game to a finish. Hayward having the honor of making the winning stroke.
