An 118-run unbeaten knock by Dean Brownlie has ensured Canterbury have exerted their dominance over Wellington on the third-day of their Plunket Shield match today.

At lunch Canterbury were 216-4 in reply to Wellington's first innings total of 239.

At the end of play on the first day - Monday - Canterbury were 91-2 with Brownlie and Peter Fulton unbeaten on 53 and 32 respectively.

Play began at the earlier time of 10am today after not a ball was bowled on the second day because of rain.

Brownlee and Fulton were humming this morning before the latter was dismissed for 79 off 175 balls when caught by Luke Ronchi off the bowling of Jesse Ryder, leaving Canterbury 187-3.

Tom Latham's stint was much shorter.

He was soon back in the pavilion with just six runs to his account when Mark Gillespie coaxed him into nicking a catch to Josh Brodie.

Brad Cachopa had added three runs off 20 balls at lunch.

Short scoreboard:

First innings

Wellington 239 v Canterbury 216 (G Worker 0, P Fulton 79, S Stewart 3, D Brownlie 118 no, T Latham 6, B Cachopa no); M Gillespie 2-44, A McKay 1-28, J Ryder 1-22.)

What do you make of the recent crackdown on chucking in cricket?

It's great news. Chucking is a blight on the game.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

I think officials are too harsh.

It's a bit late, isn't it? Remember Muralitharan?
