Wellington 93 for 2 (Pollard 43*) beat Northern Districts 82 for 4 by eight wickets (D/L method)

Wellington completed an eight-wicket win against Northern Districts in a rain-marred, bottom-of-the-table HRV Cup match in Mount Maunganui.

Northern Districts chose to bat and got to 82 for 4 in 11.3 overs, before Wellington's chase began. Their innings didn't ever really get going, with rain interrupting thrice, before a fourth shower ended it. Nothern Districts knocked over two wickets early in the chase, defending a revised target of 90 from 11 overs, before an unbroken half-century stand between Michael Pollard and James Franklin got them home with four balls to spare.
