Rain meant only 45 minutes play was possible in the first session on the first day
AF Wright scored 1 five in the North Canterbury first innings
JW Guy and B Kennedy 100 partnership in 112 minutes for the seventh wicket in the Marlborough first innings
JW Guy and B Kennedy added 163 in 148 minutes for the seventh wicket in the Marlborough first innings
Rain interrupted play late on the second day meaning the game ended with no first innings result so the right to challenge for the Hawke Cup was decided by the toss of a coin
North Canterbury won the coin toss which meant they progressed to the first Hawke Cup challenge in the 1964/65 season
