Stags stymied

Hawke's Bay Today - - Sport -

CRICKET: For the sec­ond day in a row, no play was pos­si­ble in Nel­son in the Plun­ket Shield sea­son-opener be­tween home team Cen­tral Districts and Can­ter­bury. CD were 301 for 7 at the close of play on day one but heavy rain on Thurs­day and more rain plus a sod­den out­field yes­ter­day saw both teams stuck in the Sax­ton Oval pav­il­ion. The fore­cast is brighter for to­day but with CD still bat­ing in their first in­nings and Can­ter­bury yet to pad up, no re­sult is likely. At Mount Maun­ganui, the stacked North­ern Districts side beat Otago by eight wick­ets in­side three days with rain also wash­ing out day three in Welling­ton with Auck­land trail­ing the hosts by 25 runs on the first in­nings with five wick­ets in hand.
