CRICKET.—PROPOSED ALTERATIONS OF LAWS.—Mr Fitz- gerald, the secretary of the Marylebone Club, sends to Bell's Life the following notice of proposed alterations in the laws of cricket Notice is hereby given that a special general meeting of the mem- bers of theM.C.C. will be held at the Pavilion, Lord's Ground on Wednesday, May4, at six o'clock p.m., for the purpose of consicier- ng, and, if approved, of passing, the following alterations in the laws of cricket:— It will be proposed by the Hon F. Ponsonby—"In Law IX. after the words'shall bowl," to leave out 'four balls,' and sulv stitute the words 'one over;' after the words 'to do,' to leave out 'only once,' and substitute 'twice;'after the words 'same innings,' to add 'and no bowler shall bowl more than two overs in succes- sion "In Law XLIV., after the words 'four balls,' to add 'or other agreed number. Mr Fitzgerald adds-"I may observe that this proposed change has been advocated by cricketers of young and old standing as likely to prove beneficial to bowlers. It fre- qently happens that a bowler changes ends, and finds himself of less account at his new end than he was at the By the existing law he cannot return to his original end during that innings. It is proposed that he should be allowed to change ends twice, but he is prevented from bowlingthreeoversinsuccession, a course of proceeding wlaeh would be most distasteful at the tail end of the team" Hitters will understand mv meanincr-one over of the"slows may go far in good Lands towards winning the match; thrte over" In succession from the village Freeman or su- buroan Tarmnt may be another pair of boots."
