--> Bowling in the Wellington XI first innings adds 1 run over

Heavy rain the day before and in the morning resulted in a delayed start and the game being moved from the number 1 pitch to the number 2 pitch
Wellington XI declared at lunch on the second day but only 2 overs were possible after lunch before the rain returned and meant the game had to be abandoned
