A Peter Fulton century was the highlight of an otherwise average day at the office for the Canterbury Wizards on the opening day of their Plunkett Shield match against Otago.

The in-form Canterbury skipper scored 102 in Canterbury's total of 254.

He and Shanan Stewart (76) shared in a partnership of 148 for the second wicket.

Coach Gary Stead said "we'll" find out [today] whether 254 was defendable. "At the moment, if the wicket stays the same I would say it is very defendable." Fairfax NZ
