The cricket season was opened on Saturday under favorable circumstances. The leather kept fine, and the wickets, gene-jt-n'.y speaking, ware good. At Culling Talk only were the ground conditions against the batsmen, and there the scores were small. Following are the results: FIRST GRADE. ■ Colts v. Carisbrook A. The newly-formed Colts team made a very successful entry into senior cricket on Saturday by defeating Carisbrook A comfottaniy! The- wicket had been prepared to the pavilion end of the ground than usual, consequently tho boundary on that side was a short one. But tho wicket, th ;;gh on tho slow side, played well. Ciawford won the toss from T. Adams, the in, u akipper of tho A’s. and decided to bat. Shepherd and L. Chadwick opening tb' innings. Rutherford bowled to the A-h'u’u man, and the third bail, a full tvs. was driven tor 1. Ten came from t'n over, including 4 byes. A. P- Alloo ■wa- the other bowler, and a good deal of time was being occupied hy careful placing *ff the field. Both batsmen played free cricket, Shepherd getting into doubles with a lovely stroke in front of point off Rutherford. * Chadwick was lifting the ball u bit too much, and was lucky by escaping c:i more than one occasion. Still, the cricket was brisk, and when Shepherd just tout, had one in trying to cut Rutherford, 31 had been score’ll in 30 minutes. Shephi td's share bciiw 25. A. W. Alloo was n-xt, and promptly opened with a single iif the first ball. Bannerman relieved Alloo at 65, but was very erratic, and 9 came from the over. The Rev. Hay (the Aucklander) came on vice Rutherford. Ho began with a very short one, which Alloo (J3) hit back high over-the bowler’s head. Lay, however, reached upi and brought off » kjod catch. Crawford followed, and v... cordially received by tho spectators. He began with a single. Next over ho hi; Hay high to square-leg. and Reid ti.i-.-cd him. Chadwick hoisted one over the fence tor 6, and 100 went up-after 50 cio tics’ play. At 123 Chadwick lifted Hay to Reid, and this time the fieldsman hull it. Chadwick batted freely, and made his 64 runs in ns many minutes. Next over Crawford lifted Rutherford to Bruges at long-on, and retired. The coach kid not bat crisply, and has vet to get into 1 Im. Bell was run out without getting a st: ike, and Galland joined Binney. These two colts batted nicely, Galland bringing oil some fine drives: but he was too eager to score, and popped Hay up to Nicholson at cover. Stephens tilled the gap. Rc:d added one more to his series of misses by dropping Binney at point. The fielding was not at all good. Binney was caught (if Bannerman, after a nice innings; Stephens and Hayden were run out: and .'l‘Mullen was caught, the innings closing tor 189, got in live minutes under tho two I'.'iirs. Carisbrook began badly, Bannerman being well taken in tho slips off tho third ball from Crawford, who was getting an awkwardly. Hay was next in. Satterthwaite bowled from the other end, and yorked Bruce.-, after that batsman had scored 7. Nicholson was quickly run out, but Smith batted steadily, while Hay get to work on the younger bowlers, a good drive off Satterthwaite landing over the rails at long-on. At 85 Shepherd got one past Hay, and then Crawford, going i n at the stand end, finished up tho innings in quick time. Twice he got two wickets with successive halls, and none of the batsmen could play him. The innings yielded 106, and the colts won by 85 rims, fetumps were then drawn. Crawford’s average was six for 31. The fielding of the Colts was keen and good. The umpires weire Messrs E. Hamel and H. "Wilson. Scores:— Colts.

Carisbrook B v. Grange. Carisbrook B v. Grange fought to a draw at the North Ground. Boeby replaced Downes in the Grange Eleven. Carisbrook won the toss and batted first. Tho feature of their innings was the fine partnership of Watson and Ramsden. in which Ramsden in particular batted with great judgment, as well as aggression. He \yas particularly sevoro on Graham, whom twice in one ever he lifted clear above the trees. Watson, too. played sound, hard cricket, and the partnership was the main contribution to the team's respectable total of 172 runs, since the only other two to reach double figures were Turnbull and Austin, both of whom played good cricket. The wicket was in line condition; indeed, many Carisbrook men consider it the best they have played on at the North Ground. Grange had lost eight wickets for 128 at 6.30, and it was therefore possible to expect f. result by 7. but the light was bad, and it was decided to puli stumps. Graham was then in with 39 to his credit, and playing good cricket. Other batsmen who contributed materially were Eckhold 23, Paterson 10. and Boeby 12 not out. Details: Carisbrook B.—First Innings.

i Ddnedix v. Albion. The Caledonian Ground has seldom looked batter at the beginning of the seaeon than it did on Saturday. Taking all the circumstances into account, a good wicket was provided, and both teams should have made more runs on it. Dunedin compiled 172 and Albion 115. The homo team wore the first to bat, and did not start well, two wickets falling for 12. Thou Brydcn and Grigs became associated, and they carried the score to 63, when Bryden went for a hit and was bowled. Howard, a ren. player from the North Island, made his first appearance here, and got in one or two nice off strokes. The fourth wicket fell at 76, and “Bob” Johnston was bowled second ‘ball with the total unaltered. Five for 76. Mackcrsy and Tweedy next made a stand. Tho sixth wicket was captured at 80, the. seventh at 121, the eighth at 125, and the ninth at 126. Wilkie and Graham, the last men, hit out, and the board showed 172 when tho last-named was bowled. Grigg was top scorer with 34, which included three' 4‘s. Graham, a young player, got a lot of power into his strokes without any apparent effort, and made 23, which included five 4’s and one 5. J. Wilkie (20 not out) was missed by Brinsley before he reached double figures. Tweedy (21). Bryden (19). and Mackcrsy (14) all made a good start for tho season, showing some of their old form. C. iStlglich, who took six wickets for 70, clean bowled four of his men with a ball that tempted the batsmen to have a fly. ' “ Bill” Johnston got throe for 48. Albion made a poor stand against the bowling of Maekerey, their wickets falling as under One for 16, two for 18. three for 58, four for 64, five for 71, six for 78. seven for 84, eight for 93. nine for 105, an dten for 115. Tho veteran Baker led the wav with 34, which included two 4’s. Stewart (18 not out), Johnston (15), and .Duthie (14) were the only others to reach double figures. With Torrance away, Dunedin had to rely on Mackcrsy, who rose to the occasion, taking seven wickets for 77. Johnston (three for 17) got two of his men Ibw. The finding on the whole was keen.

Opouo v. St. Hilda. The chief point of interest about the Opoho-St. Hilda match was the first appearance of the suburban team in the senior competition, and although they were defeated to the extent of a 2-point win, and their performance on paper docs not appear to bo up to tho senior standard, they did not put up such a poor showing when all things are taken into consideration. Undoubtedly tho nature of tho wicket was tho cause of the rather poor scoring, for it had only been prepared as an emergency wicket, owing to the grass on the wicket proper having failed to come away, notwithstanding that all possible attention had been bestowed on it. Opoho were dismissed in a little over an hour for 73, Kenny (21) and Downes (11) alone reaching double figures, notwithstanding a .short boundary; but when the St. Hilda batsmen faced Eckhoff and Casey tho wickets fell rapidly, and there was a regular procession pavilionwards. A good deal might be attributed to nervousness, but on such a bumpy and at times dangerous wicket it is doubtful if a really good batting team would, have made much of a showing against the Opoho mainstays. With five

“ ducks,” nine wickets wore down for only 15, but tho last two men brought tho total up to 26. The hill team appeared to have a reasonable chance of securing a 5-point win, but in their second venture no one, with the exception of Davidson, who got 26, including a 6 off Harvey, made runs in anything liko good fashion, and Kilgnur declared with six down for 46, leaving St. Hilda 95 to get. Their second innings commenced about 20 minutes to 6, and when at 6.50 their captain made a successful appeal against the light, they had six down for 32. Opoho consequently had a 2-point win.

The bowlers had much the best of tho sport, so to speak, Casey getting tour for 10 and four for 8, and Eckhotf six for 13 and two for 12. Livingstone, who can send down a fairly fail ball, breaks a little both ways, and lie is also a bowler who can use his head, and when mixing them needs watching. Jlis analysis was six for 36 and two for; 7. while O. Edwards {a left-hand -straight howler of medium pace and good length) secured three for 50 and three for 25. Taken all round, St. Kilda, are a young team of whoso merits it is yet too early to write. As far as batting is concerned, it can only be said that the two colts—Walter Kerr and Alex. Livingstone shaped well enough. Tho following are details: Oi'ono. —First Innings. Kenny c King b Livingstone 21 Ingram b Edwards 4 Davidson c. W.
