Overnight rain at Uni Oval leads to drawn match

The Plunket Shield cricket match between Otago and Central Districts has been abandoned on the fourth and final day after heavy overnight rain made field conditions unplayable.

Central Districts took first innings points after scoring 222 for nine in reply to Otago's 147.

Otago were set to resume their second innings at 113 for three this morning before the game was abandoned after umpires Ewan Watkin and Gary Baxter decided the University Oval ground was unfit for play.
