Otago have had a late morning stumble against Canterbury in
their Plunket Shield match in Dunedin to be in a spot of
trouble at lunch.
Chasing the Wizards' first innings total of 254, the home
side have lost four wickets in the morning session to go to
the break at 89 for 4.
Otago resumed at 7 without loss and openers Hamish Rutherford
and Aaron Redmond progressed smoothly early on until Redmond
was caught off the bowling of William Lonsdale for 15.
Seamer Ben McCord then struck twice to pick up Rutherford for
46 and Neil Broom for a duck.
Tim Johnston chipped in with the wicket of Michael Bracewell
for 11 to put his side into a strong position.
Captain Derek De Boorder and Darren Broom will resume for
Otago after the break.
