--> Bowling in the Marlborough second innings adds 2 runs over

Heavy rain meant play ended 80 minutes early on the first day
Marlborough required 197 in 115 minutes to win the game outright
With BD Neal absent having left at mid-day on the second day to travel to the North Island, the game ended in bizarre fashion when B Webb was run out off the final ball of the game when going for a suicidal second run
