12:47 pm on 24 November 2012

The Northern Knights have beaten the Central Stags by six wickets in their HRV Cup Twenty20 match at Hamilton's Seddon Park.

The Stags were held to 149 for six in their 20 overs and the Knights lost three quick wickets before a timely fourth wicket partnership of 80 between Scott Styris and Steven Croft.

The import once again showed his value with an unbeaten 59 to play out the win with five balls to spare.

The Knights are top with eight points, four ahead of Auckland and Wellington - while the Stags are yet to register a point.
