LOCAL CRICKET. DINAS POWIS v. CARDIFF COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS. Played at Dinas Powis Common on Saturday afternoon last under unfavourable climatic con- ditions, which were more suited toagame of football than cricket. The visitors, having won the toss, elected to bat first on a wicket rendered slow by the recent rainfalls. Commencing their innings in a sensational manner, by losing two wickets for seven runs, the Travellers improved their position upon Bouchier and Lock becoming associated, and by forcing tactics the score r01e rapidly. However, after 18 runs had been added, Bouchier was out to a well-judged catch by D. Wakeford at square-leg after compiling a useful 14. Dodds next joined Lock (who should have been stumped twice off Black), and assisted to add 14 runs for the fourth wicket, Black being successful in an appeal for l.b.w. against Dodds bringing about a separation. A. Tarrant was Lock's next partner, but a heavy shower of rain caused a temporary delay, and players had to seek shelter for quarter-of-an-hour. On resumption of play the home-bowlers experienced some difficulty in obtaining foothold on the sodden pitch, and in consequence several loose balls were delivered for a few overs. After contributing 27 runs by free hitting, Lock's innings closed by a brilliant catch by Wakeford at square-leg, the partnership with Farrant producing 20 runs. The remaining three wickets which fell gave little trouble, and the innings was declared closed with eight wickets down, and the score-sheet indicating 75 runs. The homesters had 45 minutes batting, during which time 55 runs were scored for the loss of only two wickets, Vazie Simons and H. Hatch being out, the former shaping well considering it was his first game for some time, and will prove a good asset to the villagers. Percy Vivian and D. Wakeford played out time, and brought the score from 19 to 55 runs. Vivian was in great form, and gave a splendid dis- play of batting on a bowlers' wicket, and made some good strokes in his score of 32 not out. Wakeford, too, maintained his form of Saturday week, and one regretted that time did not allow to finish the match. Wakeford's 14 not out included two fours, which speaks well for his hitting powers. The match, therefore, ended in a draw, greatly in favour ef the villagers. Scores and analysis :— COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS. W. Kitley, c and b Collins 1 A. A. Stewart. c James, b Vivian 0 C. A.
