George Worker's 71 sinks Otago

ESPNcricinfo staff

An unbeaten half-century from the opener George Walker helped Central Districts beat Otago by six wickets at McLean Park. Chasing a revised target of 121 from 17 overs, Central Districts were wrecked early by two wickets apiece from Jacob Duffy and Josh Finnie. They were precariously placed at 82 for 4 in the 13th over, but Worker's unbeaten 71 guided the team home with two deliveries to spare. He struck six fours and a six during his 53-ball knock, and even though no other batsman made more than 17, it was enough to send Otago crashing towards their seventh defeat of the tournament.

Opting to bat, Otago had earlier scored 120 for 8 from their 17 overs following a rain delay. They were aided by contributions throughout their line-up, but only Ryan ten Doeschate managed to make more than 15, hitting a 29-ball 31. The Central Districts bowlers all chipped in with wickets, but Seth Rance was the pick of the lot, collecting 2 for 22.
