Dutch international Ryan ten Doeschate offered another glimpse of his class scoring an unbeaten 88 for the Otago Volts today in a rain-affected day one in the Plunket Shield game against Central Districts in Dunedin.

Ten Doeschate is best known for his skills in the Twenty20 format and has been signed to play for the Volts in the New Zealand domestic Twenty20 competition.

He made himself available for Otago in this four-day game and today proved his worth.

After a rain delay the game final started at 3pm with Otago batting first after winning the toss.

They made a horror start when they lost Hamish Rutherford and Michael Bracewell with only 15 runs on the board.

Ten Doeschate, who was playing in his 100th first-class game, then got into his work as he and Aaron Redmond put on 127 for the third wicket to get their team out of trouble.

Redmond departed for 63 and Neil Broom followed for 14, both dismissed by Ajaz Patel.

Bad light then again interrupted proceedings as they finished on 181 for four with ten Doeschate 12 runs short of his 19th first-class century.

Was a life ban from cricket a fair punishment for Lou Vincent?

Yes, he's admitted to match-fixing and deserves his punishment

It doesn't go far enough in my opinion

No, it's only going to deter whistle blowers in the future

It's too harsh. A two-year ban would have been fair
