Northern Districts hand Firebirds another loss

12:47 pm on 12 January 2012

Wellington's faint domestic Twenty/20 cricket final hopes were well and truly quashed at the Basin Reserve Wednesday night, following the Firebirds' embarrassing 34-run loss to Northern Districts.

Chasing 162 for victory, the home side capitulated miserably and find themselves firmly rooted to the bottom of the HRV Cup table with two rounds to play.

Northern Districts are now in third place on 14 points, four behind second placed Canterbury, who have a game in hand.
