Central Districts 186 for 4 (Sinclair 71, Young 57) beat Northern Districts 143 (Styris 77, Jarvis 3-39) by 43 runs

Half-centuries by Mathew Sinclair and Will Young and a combined bowling performance helped Central Districts claim their first win, by 43 runs, at Pukekura Park. Northern Districts chose to field and they were made to regret their decision as Sinclair and Young added 111 for the second wicket in just under 11 overs. Sinclair smashed five fours and three consecutive sixes off Steven Croft before falling to the same bowler for 71. Young was out the next ball, off Anton Devich for 57 off 29 balls. Kieren Noema-Barnett and Carl Cachopa then added a quick 33 to take the score past 180.

Chasing 187, Northern Districts got off to a poor start, losing their top three for 29. The only resistance came from Scott Styris, who smashed 77 off 47 balls with five sixes as wickets tumbled around him. Kyle Jarvis was the most effective bowler with 3 for 39 while the rest of the wickets were shared by the four remaining bowlers. Northern Districts are in second place with 16 points, behind Wellington who are ahead on net run rate.
