After an interval of three years the quadrangular cricket fixtures are again to be played in Poona. There are many who consider that these matches should always be played in Bombay and never in Poona and for many reasons this might be desirable. On the other hand the climatic conditions and the wicket favour Poona and there has been a general feeling of satisfaction among all classes of society in Poona that in spite of the great difficulties with which the various communities have had to contend arrangements have been made for the matches to take place in Poona this year. The difficulties were real, but owing to the kindness of two local gentlemen, bungalows and accommodation have been found for the Parsee and Mahomedan teams and all difficulties have been overcome. On the last occasion when these fixtures were played in Poona the Presidency 11 was successful.
