Northern Districts 186 for 5 (Devcich 62) beat Canterbury 181 for 7 (Cachopa 58) by five runs
Northern Districts continued their winning streak in the HRV Cup by beating Canterbury by five runs in Hamilton, their third victory in as many games. No other team has more than one.
The Northern Districts openers made a swift start after Canterbury won the toss, adding 97 by the time Brad Wilson was dismissed for 35 in the 11th over. Anton Devcich carried on, making 62 off 43 balls. Corey J Anderson blitzed 35 off 15 deliveries to lead his team to 186 for 5. Spinner Ronnie Hira was Canterbury's best bowler, taking 1 for 24 in four overs.
Canterbury also made a good start, Bradley Cachopa dominating a first-wicket stand of 63 with George Worker. By the time Cachopa was dismissed for 58, Canterbury were 93 for 2 in the 12th over. They stumbled thereafter, losing Peter Fulton and Gareth Andrew in the space of eight runs, and then Tom Latham and Dean Brownlie fell in the space of four. Canterbury were 159 for 5 in the penultimate over and eventually fell five runs short.
