Visit of Sir Julien Cahn's Team

Visit of Sir Julien Cahn's Team.

A red letter date in the history of New Zealand cricket will be the day on which Sir Julien Cahn's cricket team steps ashore in New Zealand. Sir Julien, a wealthy London business-man, makes cricket his hobby, and yearly assembles a team of cricketers worthy of international ranking and takes the team on tour. Included in the team to visit New Zealand is a New Zealander who has made his mark in big cricket—Stewart Dempster. In addition, representatives from South Africa and Australia are included, and the tour should serve to test out New Zealand's best. One interesting match will be that played against a Combined College team. This will be played at Auckland.
