After winning the toss and electing to bat CD made the worst possible start losing a wicket in their 1st over. Against a disciplined ND, CD struggled to gain control losing wickets at regular intervals throughout their innings. Jonathon Stewart batting at number 7 scoring 51 of 72 balls supported by Ben Wheeler (35) enabled CD to reach 194 losing their last 4 wickets for 7 runs. Mattie Thomas was the star performer with the ball taking 5-17 of 19 over’s including 10 maidens, Ross Fitz-John and Jonny Wilkinson both chipping in with 2 wickets each.Northern Districts made a disastrous reply to CD’s modest 194 being dismissed for 53.

Tom Latham scored an excellent century as Canterbury made 283 of 78 over’s, his 120 was made off 131 balls. The cornerstone of the Canterbury score was a partnership of 122 for the 3rd wicket between Latham and Henry Nicholls (43). Matt Henry added a well made 49 at the end of the innings before Canterbury lost their last 3 wickets without addition to their score. The pick of the Wellington bowlers where Harry Wright 2-69 of 25 over’s, Luke Boydajian 3-60, Tom Gibson 2-55 and Matt Taylor 2-25 all made useful contributions with the ball. Wellington resume tomorrow on 73-3 chasing 283 for 1st innings points.
