JG Kemp and PPW Morris added 114 in 57 minutes for the fifth wicket in the Auckland first innings
WR Playle and RW Morgan added 104 in 100 minutes for the third wicket in the Auckland second innings
A wild return to the bowlers end during the Auckland first innings caused the Fiji bowler, A Dews, to break the top joint of the second finger on his right hand which meant he took no further part in the game.
