--> There was no play on the final day.

The match started 30 minutes late on the first day to allow the pitch to dry out
In the West Coast (South Island) first innings AR Dawe was caught by Neal but it is not known which Neal took the catch
Heavy overnight rain saturated the pitch and despite frantic efforts to dry it out no play was possible on the second day
