--> Day 1 Lunch: Nelson (1) 98/3 (Lowans 48*, Hampton 6*; 41 overs)
--> Day 2 Lunch: Canterbury XI (1) 122/3 (Harris ?*, Chapple ?*)
--> Canterbury XI first innings: 100 in 170 minutes

LB Reade and GE Lowans put on 86 for the first wicket in the Nelson first innings
Nelson's bowling resources were weakened because a heal injury to their leading wicket-taker IB Leggat meant he was unable to bowl in the match
On the first day the Canterbury XI batsmen successfully appealed against the light 50 minutes before stumps were due to be drawn
PGZ Harris and ME Chapple added 91 for the fourth wicket in the Canterbury XI first innings
