This Test has special significance in NZ cricket. It started just before the Tangiwai rail disaster on the North Island main trunk railway (24/12) when a bridge was washed away by a volcanic lahar from the Mt Ruapehu crater lake. The fiancee of RW Blair was killed.
Blair, not expected at the crease, batted at 11 and stayed while Sutcliffe hit Tayfield for 3 further 6s in 4 balls. Blair himself also hit Tayfield for 6.
