--> Nelson first innings: 100 in 65 minutes

No play was possible on the first scheduled day due to a rain-soaked pitch and the Wairarapa team had been unable to get to Nelson due to the rough weather causing the cancellation of their flights
Three members of the Wairarapa team only arrived in Nelson an hour before the match started with the other nine having arrived on three separate flights on February 17
