Scorecard

Half centuries by Neal Parlane and Matthew Bell helped Wellington beat Northern Districts by 43 runs in a high-scorer at the Basin Reserve. The home side piled up an imposing 291, batting the opposition out of the game as Northern Districts managed 248.

Parlane and Bell added 147 for the second wicket after captain Michael Parlane decided to bat first. Both fell short of their respective tons but laid the platform for a big score. The middle order, led by Jesse Ryder, chipped in with valuable cameos to lift the total to 291.

Peter McGlashan led chase with a half century but once he was dismissed, half the side was back in the pavilion with only 138 on board. Ian Butler scored a fluent 47 off just 37 balls but it wasn't enough as Northern Districts were bowled out in the 50th over. Seamer Grant Elliott was the most effective bowler, taking three wickets.
