New Zealand A 4 for 147 (Marshall 54) beat Karnataka State Cricket Association XI 150 (Patil 49) by six wickets on D/L

New Zealand A skipped further ahead of their rivals when they maintained their unbeaten record in a rain-interrupted victory against Karnataka State Cricket Association XI at Buderim. The other match between Australian Academy and South Africa Emerging Players, who reached 2 for 32 at Caloundra, was abandoned after only 9.1 overs due to the wet weather, leaving New Zealand with a healthy advantage with three qualifying matches remaining.

Karnataka once again struggled to post a satisfying score and were dismissed in the 48th over for 150, but two short rain breaks in the New Zealand innings reduced the match by four overs and the target to 142. James Marshall struck 54 off 64 balls before a damaging cameo of 16 off six deliveries from Warren McSkimming, who finished the match with a six.

The four teams in the Emerging Players Tournament have a rest day on Monday before the matches switch from the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane. New Zealand A have collected six wins to lead the competition while South Africa are second, the Academy third and Karnataka fourth.
