Warwickshire's Michael Powell suffered a fourth-ball 'duck' on the third day of Otago's State Championship match against Auckland.
With rain having washed out the opening day, Auckland declared their first innings at 99 for two in reply to Otago's 268. Otago reached stumps on five for two in their second innings.
There was a bright side for Powell, however. His teammates back at Edgbaston - including Alex Loudon who has just returned from England A team duty in the West Indies - have just departed on an outward bounds team-building course in the New Forest.
The three-day trip will include activities such as orienteering, canoeing and archery and is an attempt to break up the repetitive preseason routine of indoor nets and training.
Director of coaching Mark Greatbatch said: "It is a great way to take the lads outside their normal environment. It is an exercise in team-building, leadership and getting to understand each other better.
"Only we can decide how good we want to be and the outcome of this few days will allow us to create a blue-print for a plan of action for the season ahead."
Although the injured Ashley Giles is unable to join the squad, the new chief execuitve, Colin Povey, and cricket operations manager, Keith Cook, will be joining the players, starting each day with a cross-country run at 7am for the 40-somethings.
