A two-day match began at Stanford Hall, Loughborough, yesterday between Sir Julien Cahn's XI and the Scottish touring XI.
Sir Julien Cahn's XI, who won the toss, lacked the; services of J. Walsh, who injured his hand against the New. Zealanders last week. Sir Julien Cahn and H. Mudge, the young Australian, opened to the bowling of A. Paris and Creber on a wicket which, despite the week-end rain, looked good for many runs.
Mudge batted confidently, and within half an hour he had pushed the score to 31 by pulling Creber for a couple of smart boundaries, and at lunch he had 49 to his credit out of a total of 69, made in eighty minutes.
Prior to lunch, Sir Julien Cahn was dismissed by a smart catch in the gully by W. K. Laidlaw off Paris, and then R. E. C. Butterworth was smartly stumped by A. K. McTavish.
Joined by C. S. Dempster, Mudge went on to reach 57 out of 93 in ninety minutes being lbw to Paris, whose two wickets had cost 24 runs in 13 overs.
The Scottish bowling was exceedingly good, and it took Dempster thirty-five minutes to score 11 runs.
With the total at 97 for three wickets, rain caused a stoppage, and, although the captains made several inspections of the wicket during the afternoon a sharp shower shortly after 5.30 ruined all prospects of further play for the day.
The match between Sir Julien Cahn's XI and the Scottish touring eleven, which concluded at Stanford Hall Loughborough, yesterday, was drawn.
Continuing- their first innings, Sir Julien Cahn' s side lost C. S. Dempster when he had made 34, and D. P. Morkel with his score at 18. G. Summers batted attractively, and hit 67 out of 94 in quick time his innings, including two 6s and eight 4s.
After C. R. Maxwell and R. J. Crisp had left, both cleverly caught by Wass, T. Reddick and J. B. Hall scored quickly and despite keen fielding by the Scots, they were able to send the score to within four of 300 when Sir Julien Cahn applied the closure with eight-wickets down.
The innings had then occupied slightly over three hours. A. Paris, with four wickets for 76, and Creber, with two for 94, had both toiled splendidly on a wicket that appeared to give little assistance to the bowlers.
Scotland provided shocks when they took their innings, half the side being dismissed for 22 runs in forty minutes, Crisp having at this period four wickets for 7 runs. Wass batted stolidly, and at tea he had scored 38 out of 55.
Seven wickets fell for 73,-but Wass remained and was ninth out after scoring a brilliant 60 out of 91-the innings closing for 119.
Crisp had six wickets for 35.
