Peter Fulton batted an entire day to put his Canterbury Wizards side in control of their Plunket Shield cricket match with Otago, in Dunedin today.
Having scored a century in the first innings, the Canterbury captain scored his 11th first class century today, batting a shade over six and a quarter hours and facing 270 balls.
Fulton will resume tomorrow on 106 not out and with his side on 234-5 with a lead of 216.
The University Oval is low and slow for the medium pacers, but the spinners are able to extract turn and bounce making Otago's last innings chase a difficult prospect.
After Fulton, the next best for the Wizards was opener George Worker who batted two and a half hours for 28.
Ian Butler was the pick of the Otago bowlers taking 2-38 from 17 overs.
But the figures of the day went to Jimmy Neesham who, from 23 overs of medium pace, bowled 11 maidens and ended the day with figures of 1-25.
