--> Bowling in the Nelson first innings adds 1 run under
--> AB Carey (1) 100 in 47 minutes
--> GE Lowans retired hurt in the Nelson first innings having scored 5 (team had lost 0 wickets)

AB Carey and TG Newman added 183 for the fifth wicket in the Nelson City first innings

Nelson City won the Newman Shield
