Central Districts have a grip on their Plunket Shield match against Northern Districts after two days at Gisborne.

The hosts were rolled for 183 on day one and Central had reached 341-9 in reply by stumps last night.

Seamer James Baker was the pick of the Northern bowlers with 4-59 off 25 overs but the Central tail proved troublesome after they were reduced to 165-5.

Wicketkeeper Ben Smith was unbeaten on 64 and he and Adam Milne (38 not out) added an unbroken 55 for the last wicket.

Taranaki's William Young made 36. Fairfax NZ

I long for the Summer of 69 (with apologies to Bryan Adams)

Whatever. I can't wait for winter
