From the Archives (November 6, 1919): Europeans Vs Mahomedans.

Bombay, December 4. — The second game of the Quadrangular Tournament which started this morning provided an interesting day’s cricket, more enterprising methods being adopted by the batsman than in the previous game. The crowd was not quite so large as witnessed the finish of the Hindu-Parsi match, but were about 8000 present at the start. The Mahomedans having won the toss sent in Contracter and Tambuwalla who made a bad beginning. After Tarrent bowled a maiden over, Tambewalla was taken at the wicket off Parsons first ball. The second wicket fell at 10, third at 30, but thereafter the Mahomedans showed more confidence and the later batsmen all played bright cricket, first hundred being signaled after 85 minutes play. Good innings by Yusuf Beg, Nazirhussain and Abdussalam were mainly responsible for the Mohomedans’ total. Yusuf Beg played very attractive cricket and Nazirhussain hit resolutely scoring six boundaries. Tarrant, who bowled throughout the innings, sending down 28 overs dismissed 6 batsmen.
