Match Summary

Northern Districts 154-5 (Nick Kelly 56, Corey Anderson 38; Matt Henry 2-29)

Canterbury  146-6  (Henry Nicholls 40, Cam Fletcher 37*; Corey Anderson 2-31, Ish Sodhi 2-35)

Result - Northern Districts won by 6 runs (D/L)

Batting first, Northern Districts made 154-5 off their allotted overs in a rain affected start to the match (match reduced to 16 overs per side), one of the talking points in their innings was the dismissal of Daryl Mitchell, out for obstruction  - you don’t see that very often. Anyway, he was out with the score 34-3 and Northern Districts went on to post a respectable 154-5 in their 16 overs - Nick Kelly 56 top scoring and Corey Anderson 38.

In reply, Canterbury fell just short in the run chase with good knocks from Henry Nicholls 40, Cam Fletcher 37* - Corey Anderson 2-31 and Ish Sodhi 2-35 were the pick of the Northern Districts bowlers.
