Wellington Firebirds won the toss and decided to bat against Northern Knights at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui.
The Firebirds scored a competitive par total of 161-8 in their 20 Overs with Devon Conway 32 and Jamie Gibson 28 top scoring. They would be slightly disappointed with the score after the start they had, hitting 41 off just 4 overs before Pollard was out with score 41-1; Brett Randell 3-34 and Ish Sodhi 3-12 (off 4 overs) were the stars with the ball for Northern Knights.
In reply, Tim Seifert 30, Anton Devcich 14 and Dean Brownlie 24 all got good starts with the bat for Northern Knights; however, it was Daryl Mitchell 58 that pushed on and although he was out with the score 152-5, with the Knights needing 10 runs in 11 balls, Joe Carter and Daniel Flynn got them over the line with an over to spare.
