The attendance of the public was poor. Brice won the toss and elected to hat. The wicket was a triflo soft, but wore well. Midland and Baker were- the opening pair of batsmen, Crawford and Eckhoff initiating the bowling. With the total at 47 Alloa replaced Eckhoff. Soon after Crawford, with a fast yorker, bowled Baker, the telegraph showing 54—1,-7-18. Hiddlestone followed, but at 70 was out teg before to Crawford. Gibbes joined Midlane, but was very uncomfortable to Otago's coach, who clean t bowled, him after beating him three times. Burton had a short life, Crawford securing his fourth wicket by dismissing bim with a beautiful ball with a slight turn in from the off. 7g_4_2 was hoisted, and Otago's hopes were in the ascendancy. But the BrayMidlan© partnership put a different complexion on the game. Several changes of bowling were resorted to, but the score was.carried to 260. The partnership, which had yielded 182, was dissolved by Watson tossing up a slow ball with a break from the leg, and in stopping one of these Brav chopped the ball on to |ns wickets, He had played fine, free oncket, although he had appeared uncomfortable at the start. His total of 82 included ten 4'is, Almost immediately after Bruco joining Midlane failing light caused the drawin';' of Stumps. Midlaue's score was then 134. He had played an absolutely chanceless innings, and had hit fourteen 4's and one 6- His strokes through the slips had been magnificent, and ho received an ovation on returning to the pavilion.
