The Ford Trophy, Final: Northern Districts v Wellington at Mount Maunganui, Apr 5, 2014
Wellington won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)
5 April 2014 (50-over match)

Arnel to Devcich, OUT, Devcich looks to play across the line to a full ball pitching on leg which hits the pad in front of middle, umpire Phil Jones deliberates for a lengthy period before raising the finger

AP Devcich lbw b Arnel 5 (18m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Northern Districts 11/1   DR Flynn 5* (12b 1x4)   BJ Arnel 2.4-0-5-1

Gillespie to Flynn, OUT, Flynn perishes looking to repeat the stroke but doesn't roll the wrists on this and uppishly flicks it straight to square leg

DR Flynn c Blundell b Gillespie 12 (39m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.00

Northern Districts 29/2   BS Wilson 9* (15b 2x4)   MR Gillespie 4.2-1-14-1

Patel to Watling, OUT, Watling throws it away as he charged down and looked to loft straight but it skewed off the outer half of the bat and swirled down to long-off as a solid partnership ends

BJ Watling c Woodcock b Patel 50 (76m 65b 4x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

Northern Districts 133/3   BS Wilson 57* (76b 4x4)   JS Patel 4.2-0-24-1

Woodcock to Wilson, OUT, and now the other established Northern Districts batsman departs softly as Wilson came down and just tamely chipped it back to the bowler to hasten drinks

BS Wilson c & b Woodcock 68 (117m 95b 5x4 0x6) SR: 71.57

Northern Districts 153/4   DJ Mitchell 7* (13b)   LJ Woodcock 7.4-0-37-1

Patel to Santner, OUT, Patel cleverly tosses this delivery up on off and it turns past Santner's attempted heave down the ground as he came down the wicket, Ronchi on this occasion adjusted sufficiently to collect the ball and break the stumps to bring an impetus-injecting innings to an end

MJ Santner st †Ronchi b Patel 44 (39m 38b 4x4 1x6) SR: 115.78

Northern Districts 211/5   DJ Mitchell 21* (33b)   JS Patel 9.2-0-45-2

Arnel to Kuggeleijn, OUT, cleaned out by a length ball on middle as he inside-edges the pull into his back pad and onto the stumps, end of a painful attempt at late-over slogging by Kuggeleijn

SC Kuggeleijn b Arnel 0 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Northern Districts 212/6   DJ Mitchell 22* (34b)   BJ Arnel 7.3-0-26-2

Gillespie to JJ Boult, OUT, full. Fast. Yorker. Blockhole. Four elements which add up to a very handy delivery in the death overs of a one-day innings and Boult's desperate swing makes no contact as the stumps are comprehensively dismantled

JJ Boult b Gillespie 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Northern Districts 216/7   DJ Mitchell 24* (37b)   MR Gillespie 8.2-2-31-2

Gillespie to Mitchell, OUT, goes for a pull with all his might to a slower short ball and he couldn't generate enough power on the shot as it lands in Elliott's lap five metres inside the rope

DJ Mitchell c Elliott b Gillespie 30 (75m 40b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Northern Districts 223/8   IS Sodhi 1* (1b)   MR Gillespie 9-2-38-3

Arnel to Sodhi, OUT, cleaned out as he goes for a slog to leg to a length ball on off and suddenly Northern Districts are in danger of not batting their full allotment

IS Sodhi b Arnel 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Northern Districts 223/9   TA Boult 0* (0b)   BJ Arnel 8.2-0-29-3
