Auckland 342 (Kitchen 115, Jones 109) and 0 for 0 need another 188 runs to beat Central Districts 180 (Shaw 5-59) and 349 (Ingram 90, Thompson 54*, Nethula 3-83)
Scorecard

Central Districts put up a much better showing second time around in the State Championship final against Auckland at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval. But Auckland, who have held the upper hand throughout, will still be favourites to chase down a below-par target. Bad light stopped them from getting off the marks today.

Resuming on 116 for 3, Peter Ingram led the way for Central Districts with a timely 90 off 155 balls, which included nine boundaries, and was helped along by contributions from the middle and lower orders. Bevan Griggs played patiently for his 44 before Ewen Thompson added a valuable 51-ball 54 towards the end.

Legspinner Tarun Nethula was Auckland's most successful bowler with 3 for 83 while Michael Bates, Daryl Tuffey and Lance Shaw picked up two wickets apiece as Central Districts were bowled out in 93 overs.
