Northern Districts have extended their lead in the State Shield cricket competition after a dramatic one-wicket victory over Wellington at the Basin Reserve.

Peter McGlashan struck sixes off the last two balls of the match to give Northern the win.

Elsewhere, Canterbury thrashed Central Districts in Christchurch by 132 runs while Otago's match against Auckland in Dunedin was abandoned due to rain.
