In the event of an Australian team visiting England next year, a match between England and Australia will be played for the benefit of Arthur Shrewsbury. Iredale is this year playing with the Belvideres in Sydney, and has already scored 205 runs without losing his wicket. He made 105 not out last Saturday against the Warwicks. Coningham, the Queensland cricketer, intends residing in Sydney. He will play with the Carltons. Harry Moses, the left bander is all right again, and playing well.

Australian Eleven in England
WITH the return match against the South of Eng land the tour of the Eighth Australian Eleven in England came to an end. When the team left Australia at the end of March it was looked upon and with good reason as a powerful and representative Australian Eleven. Exception was taken and with justice, to the inclusion of Walter Giffen but the addition of Cuningham, owing to the ex cellent all-round cricket he was then showing, practically made Waller Giffen fourteenth man and merely an emergency. The only absentee of whom it could be said that his place was not filled satis factorily was the batsman Harry Moses; but even with the necessary allowance on that score, theteam was still the Australian Eleven. Unfortu nately the reputation of the Australians was not so well upheld in the field as had been anticipated, and at the end of the third test match against All Eng land, their record stood-Matches played 32, won 16, lost 9, drawn 7.

The New South Wales Cricketers' Association, in placing Murdoch's name amongst those selected to practise for their intercolonial match against South Australia at Adelaide, have settled all doubts as to their willingness to play him. Harry Moses, whom it was feared we had seen for the last time in intercolonial cricket, has also been selected. The Australians will be back in time for the match, which is played at Adelaide on the 15th December.

Mr. J. R. Wood took a team from Sydney to Newcastle to play the Newcastle-club on March 14. The Sydney team was a very strong one, including as it did Harry Moses, Tommy Garrett, Dr. Wilkinson, J. R. Wood, and other players, who have figured con- spicuously in club cricket in the metropolis. The match was played on the city ground and created a considerable amount of interest. The local team went first to the wickets, and making a good stand against the bowling of White, Wood, Garrett, and Watson compiled, 191, before the last wicket fell. Wooden was responsible for 35, Cunningham 38, A. Hadley 21, E. Hadley 30, Gilbert 13. and Bryant 29 not out. The visitors made a fairly respectable stand against the bowling of Terry, Hadley, and Cunningham, and when the stumps were drawn had lost seven wickets for 124. J. R. Wood's not out score of 34 was the best, and that was followed by Harry Moses, who compiled 32, having been bowled by Terry. Allen, who scored l8, was the only other batsman that reached double figures. The match resulted in a draw.

A Sydney paper reported that Harry Moses will not play cricket next season. It is to be hoped the statement is not true.

In the intercolonial match at Adelaide on Saturday, Harry Moses made his first appearance in intercolonial cricket this season.

Writing of the recent intercolonial match—New South Wales v. South Australia—the Referee's Adelaide correspondent says :—" First and foremost as a bat in Australia, stands Harry Moses. So long as he may choose to play the game he now does, so will he always, in every fair and impartial man's opinion, take the first place. He fell an easy victim to George Giffen in the first innings, but the second attempt he had his revenge and treated us to a bit of his quality. During the two innings he only let one ball go past him, and as that was a drive which resulted in four being run, there was not much to be said. In my poor opinion N.S.W. was only beaten from Garrett's failing to rise to the occasion - if when Giffen went out in the second innings he had tempted the batsman to hit, it would, have been all over with the Adelaide men. Instead of that we had the spectacle of over after over being sent down which simply resulted in maidens being recorded, the batsmen contenting themselves in waiting for their opportunity.

Harry Moses, the crack left-hander,heads the list of Australian batsmen who have played in international and inter- colonial matches, his figures being 82 innings (8 not out), 2,769 runs, average 37.28. During the last season or two he has been troubled with a bad leg, which has interfered with his cricket, and he had retired from first-class play; but all cricketers will be glad to learn that he has changed his mind, and that his leg is better.
