Most memorable game and why:
Northern Districts v Canterbury in 2008 at QE2 Park in Christchurch.  Being born and bread in Canterbury it was a clash of emotions.  We ended up beating Canterbury both days in the 50 over games.  First time ND had come away with two wins against Canterbury and was a very memorable game.
