When a match has been agreed upon, the club having the choice of innings had better take the last; as most players are much excited and nervous, if it is their first attempt in a match, and it becomes almost impossible to bat well, until it has partially subsided.  Be sure that you commence the game in time to finish it before darkness sets in; for, if your opponents have the last inning, they may remain at the bat when it is not light enough to see the ball plainly, and having made a large number of runs for their side, will bat out–(lose the inning.)
