Cricket: Kuggeleijn takes Wellington to victory

Night watchman Scott Kuggeleijn blasted his maiden first-class hundred to guide Wellington to an emphatic seven-wicket victory over Central Districts in their Plunket Shield outing at Karori Park today.

Wellington began the morning on 53-3 in pursuit of 247 for victory and Kuggeleijn, batting at No 5, finished unbeaten on 142 as he slugged 15 fours and five sixes, while opener Michael Papps anchored the chase at the other end.

Papps was unbeaten on 77 as Wellington reached 248-3 and wrapped up the game in the second session on day four.
