Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

The Duck­worth Lewis sys­tem was North City’s en­emy as they lost to Up­per Hutt in Welling­ton premier cricket on Satur­day.

In the rain, North City man­aged 137 all out, Nick Walters (45) and Dane Hutchin­son (31) the only scor­ers of note as they bat­ted first at Bar­ton Oval.

In chas­ing, and de­spite record­ing six ducks, Up­per Hutt got ahead of the re­quired run rate un­der the DL sys­tem and were 90/9 af­ter 22.4 overs when the rain came again. Aussie im­port Hutchin­son took 4-12 from seven overs, with Tipene Fri­day and Neeraj Chawla re­turn­ing 2-14 and 2-22 re­spec­tively.

The re­sult sees Norths mid-ta­ble on nine points, just seven points be­hind lead­ers Karori and Univer­sity.
