Led by Daniel Flynn, whose best score of the season was 78 and whose average was 28.50, ND finished the day on 315-2 with Flynn finishing on 162 not out, his 15th first-class century while Daryl Mitchell was unbeaten on 26.

His century came from 150 balls in 224 minutes while by the end of the day he had faced 281 balls and batted for 392 minutes.

Flynn led a 212-run stand for the second wicket with Joe Carter who was dismissed five runs short of what would have been a maiden first-class century, but who at least had the satisfaction of advancing his highest score beyond 81.

Colin de Grandhomme was the successful bowler for Auckland with 2-55 from 16 overs.

Wellington were also made to pay for their decision to ask Canterbury to bat as they ended the day on 292-5 at Karori Park.

Tom Latham spearheaded the batting while scoring 137 not out, his third first-class century. He raised the milestone off 185 balls in 261 minutes and hit 13 fours and a six.

While Rob Nicol (1) and Dean Brownlie (8) were out with only 20 runs on the board, Latham shared a third-wicket stand of 137 with Henry Nicholls who scored 70 before falling to Brent Arnel, while 133 runs were added with Shanan Stewart who scored 60 before he was trapped leg before wicket by Andy McKay.

McKay had double success when capturing Brad Cachopa off the last ball of the same over as Stewart's dismissal. He had 3-79 from 18 overs.


At the University Oval in Dunedin, Central Districts were asked to bat and they struggled their way to 255 with Kruger van Wyk's 91 the crucial innings for the side. Brad Smith had scored 27 at the top of the order while Tarun Nethula hit 24 at the bottom.

Jacob Duffy took 3-50 off 19.4 overs and Jesse Ryder 3-32 from 11 overs. Sam Wells took 2-46 from 18.

But Otago had a poor start to their innings with Aaron Redmond caught by van Wyk from Peter Trego's bowling for five. By stumps they were 14 for one wicket.
