The chief feature of the first day's play of the two-day match at Loughborough Road, Nottingham, between Scotland and Sir Julien Cahn's XI , was the delightful batting of O.H. Wass, who was undefeated with 103 when Scotland's innings came to a close after just under two and a half hours. He scored freely all round the wicket, never gave a chance, and hit twelve 4's.
Half the wickets fell to the lbw rule, the batsmen being completely deceived by Peebles' occasional straight ones. Jones and Davidson, who opened the innings put on 74 in an hour, but both left at this score, Jones being Peebles' first victim.
Wass came in just before the luncheon interval, and faced all the bowling with confidence. Stewart joined him at 113, and this partnership put on 93 in just over an hour. Following the departure of Stewart, Symon and MacKenna both left for the addition of two runs. Wass then reached his century.
Peebles, who kept an immaculate length, bowled 23 overs, three of them maidens, and took five wickets for 61 runs.
Reddick and Butterworth put on 100 in sixty five minutes, in opening for Sir Julien Cahn's XI, and at the same time Reddick reached his half century. Seven runs later Butterworth also scored his 50, despite several bowling changes, and the pair remained undefeated when stumps were drawn, having scored 113 in eighty minutes.
The two day match between Sir Julien Cahn's XI and Scotland at Loughborough Road, Nottingham, ended in a draw yesterday.
When Sir Julien Cahn's XI resumed their first innings, on a pitch that was still full of runs, they stood 152 runs behind with all their wickets intact. By the tea interval they had put on 453 for the loss of seven wickets, and the innings was declared closed.
The chief feature was the superb all-round display by R.E. Butterworth, who occasionally assists Middlesex. He made 121 out of 224 in two and a half hours, and hit one 6 and twenty six 4's. MacPherson claimed his wicket with the new ball at 223.
The Butterworth-Dempster partnership was the brightest spot in the game, 101 being put on in sixty five minutes. Dempster's 77 occupied two hours and ten minutes, during which he obtained ten 4's. Four batsmen had the distinction of passing the half century mark.
Melville, a slow left-arm bowler, put up an exceptionally good performance against a strong batting side.
During the tea interval the innings was declared closed, after lasting five hours and ten minutes.
The visitors faced arrears of 188 in their second venture, and made a disastrous start, half the side being out for 68 in fifty nine minutes, three men again being out lbw. Jones and Grieve put on 46 in twenty five minutes for the sixth wicket, and the latter, who is skipper, found the boundary four times. Jones reached hid 50, which contained six 4's, with 122 on the board. Stewart hit his wicket, and stumps were then drawn for the day.
