Newspaper Article – Newbigin’s Bowling

Newbigin’s Bowling.

The Wellington representative cricketer, J. Newbigin, looks certain to become the bowler of the season when club records are finally chalked up. Though he in no way threatens to join the ranks of the giants of the past – W.S. Brice, who took 93 wickets in 1917-18, J.G. Ashenden, who took 80 in 1941-42, and R.M. Allen who took 78 in the same season, he should, with two matches to go, have every prospect of attaining figurers well up to recent standards. Newbigin has taken 47 wickets. Since the war the best aggregate was 66 by C.L. Randall in 1948-49, and 59 by M.G. Browne in 1950-51.
