Central Districts 476 (Cachopa 123, Nethula 108) and 21 for 0 beat Otago 257 (Wells 78, Butler 73, Milne 5-47) and 239 (Redmond 57, Rutherford 55, Mathieson 5-39) by 10 wickets
Central Districts sealed their third victory of competition, and retained their place at the top of the table, beating Otago by 10 wickets in Napier. Two lower-order century stands involving Carl Cachopa, Tarun Nethula and Adam Milne helped them post 476 after they'd been in trouble, and they proved significant in the outcome. Milne turned in an all-round performance, taking five wickets to bowl out Otago for 257 in the first innings and thereby helping his team enforce the follow-on. Otago were off to a good start in the second, with their openers adding 122, but collapsed to 239 all out. Andrew Mathieson was the wrecker-in-chief, picking up a maiden five-for with his medium-pace. The target of just 21 was knocked off by the Central Districts openers.
