SECOND GRADE MATCH, OTAGO v. CANTERBURY. The second gnide match Otago v. Cantcrburv was commenced yesterday on tho North" Ground. There was quite a largo number of spectators present, and a collection taken up during tho afternoon reali*ed £1 15s, which rocs towards defraying the expenses of tho match. It had been intended to play on tho Grange wicket, but on inspection* in the morning it was discovered that some vandals had not onlv turned on the water and flooded one end of the pitch, buti made doubly sure that it would bo rendered useless by making deep heel marks in tho soft turf. Fortunately the' Albion wicket was in fairly gond'eondition. and on this tho match was played. Canterbury batted first, Milliken and Lawrence opening. When he had made 11 Milliken fell lbw to Holderness. but the veteran Lawrence went on to 35, made bv tonnd batting, Haughey meantime getting double figures, Sinclair made top score (41) bv good, steady play, and Russell 26 bv a'nice, free innings. Burnside came 'out with the best bowling figures, but Holderness and Cameron also bowled verv,well. Otago began very well, two wickets being down for 45. of which F Hai# made 26 soundlv. Then there was a collapse, the next four wickets falling for an additional run. White, aided by Cameron and Shaw, improved the position, and at tho call of time the -score stood at 113 for nine wickets. White deserves great praise for a workmanlike innings, his form being easily tho best shown by any of the home team'. Following are the (scores : Canterbury.—First Innings. |T.
