Cricket in New Zealand

Cricket in New Zealand.

New Zealand's cricketers left their best performances to the concluding stages of the English tour and did much to remove any suggestion that the team was far removed from the standards of the two teams that had previously toured England. The bowling of Cowie, the batting of Donnelly, and the wicket-keeping of the Rugby-cricketer Tindall, were three features which impressed English critics. But the unanimous opinion is that our cricketers must have more first-class match play before we may hope to hold our own with representative English or Australian elevens. The New Zealand Rugby Union did much to popularise Rugby in Australia by the regular despatch of All Black teams and it is sincerely hoped that the Australian Board of Cricket Control will reciprocate this gesture by sending Australian cricketers to New Zealand at more regular intervals.
