Central Stags won the toss and decided to field against Wellington Firebirds who scored a competitive total 196-8 in their 20 Overs with Devon Conway 89 and James Neesham 38 starring with the bat and Willem Ludick 2-15 and Seth Rance 2-49 the wicket takers for the Stags.
In reply, Wellington Firebirds reduced Central Stags to 59-4 in the 9th over and but for Kieran Noema-Barnett’s 58, the Stags total would have much less. Jimmy Neesham bowled a brilliant spell of 2.1 overs 8-1 and the Stags were bundled out for 154 - Ollie Newton 5-45 and Logan van Beek 2-32 were the main wicket takers for the Firebirds.
With that win, Wellington go to the top of the table. Next match up in the Dream11 Super smash is Auckland Aces v Central Stags.
