Otago poured on the runs and the misery against a star-studded Canterbury when they declared on 601 on the second day of their State Championship match in Christchurch. Incidentally, it was just one run less than their record score against Canterbury.

Greg Todd, in his first match back for Otago after a horrific leg injury he suffered last season, hit a career-best 160. He was well supported by wicketkeeper Gareth Hopkins (38) while bowlers Bradley Scott (52*) and Craig Smith (49) put on 75 for the ninth wicket.

In reply, Canterbury limped to stumps at 144 for 4. Brendon McCullum, in the unfamiliar role as an opener, blitzed his way to 67 off just 72 deliveries, but found little support. Peter Fulton (17) and Nathan Astle (6) both fell to McCullum's brother Nathan. Much of Canterbury's resistance tomorrow will centre on Craig McMillan and Chris Harris, both at the crease.
