Cricket Club

Cricket Club.

Last year's senior cricket eleven did much to establish the Varsity Cricket Club. This year the seniors have a position to maintain, and it is to be hoped that the junior grades make a better showing than they did last year. Those present at the annual general meeting, last Thursday, were in a genial and acquiescent mood. The election of officers resulted: club captain, J. R. Stevens; honorary secretary, A. g. Wicks; honorary treasurer, J. P. Mules; committee, Blacker, Blandford, Edgley and Simpson.

The only two incidents of note were the trouble caused by the scrutineers and the manner in which Henry Moore harangued the meeting. The latter's address developed into a debate between Moore and Blandford, which would have still been going had not the chairman intervened. It was said that there was much room for improvement in the administration of Wellington cricket and the meeting instructed its delegate to support proposals enabling the election of a more representative management committee.

The N.Z. University Cricket Council, which has been sponsored by Victoria, appears at last to be more than a dream and next season should see its formation. Each College will appoint a representative and the function of the Council will be to control University cricket. Every year, whether they play or not, a N.Z.U. team will be selected and when possible tours and matches will be arranged.

Two points deserve special attention by Victoria's incoming cricket committee. Firstly, there has been much bad management in the past with the selection of junior teams. Very often the re-shuffling of promising players has been done too late in the season. The second matter deserving of attention is the better regulation of bowling at practice.
