A century by English allrounder Peter Trego allowed the Central Stags to dictate play on day one of their Plunket Shield match against the Auckland Aces in Napier.

Batting at No 6, Trego hit 19 fours and one six in his innings of 141, combining with wicketkeeper Kruger van Wyk in a partnership of 218 for the sixth wicket.

Van Wyk scored 83, hitting seven fours, before he was bowled by Michael Bates. 

Trego follwed immediately without a run being added to the total  to give Auckland some hope of wrapping up the tail quickly.

But a hard-hit 25 including five boundaries by Doug Bracewell again swung the game Central's way. 

At stumps, the Stags were 382-7 with the Aces facing an uphill battle on day two.
