A most interesting cricket match was played at Minster (Thanet) between 11 ladies, who used bats, and 11 men, who used broomsticks and bowled and fielded with their left hands. Miss Collard, of Gore-street, excelled with bat and ball, making 25 runs. Great fun was caused by the gentlemen handling the leather with their right hands, the ladies claiming three runs for each offence. In the end the ladies were victorious by two runs.
