--> Day 1 Lunch: Nelson (1) 50/1 (Smith ?*, Pierce ?*)

Rain interrupted play on the first day for 20 minutes with Nelson 84 for 2
Bad light ended play on the first day just before 5.30pm with 298 minutes play having been possible
The start of play on the second day was delayed until 4.30pm with play continuing until 7.31pm in very gloomy conditions but Nelson could not afford to appeal against the light because they needed to put runs on the board
