Auckland batsman Colin Munro notched his province's second highest first class individual score in a record-breaking day at Eden Park's No. 2 oval today.

Munro scored 269 not out in Auckland's total of 658-9 declared against Wellington - the third highest innings' total by the province.

Munro's 269, which came off just 252 balls with 27 fours and 11 sixes, is the highest by an Auckland batsman since W.N. Carson, who was killed in action in World War Two, scored 290 against Otago in Dunedin in 1937.

Mitchell McClenaghan remained 5 not out at the other end when captain Gareth Hopkins declared.

Earlier, Craig Cachopa scored 166 in a 377-run sixth wicket partnership with Munro - a new sixth wicket record partnership for Auckland, beating 211 by Martin Guptill and Colin de Grandhomme last summer.

Wellington scored 380 all out in their first innings.
