Canterbury skittle Central Districts for 86 in stunning comeback

Defending 157, Canterbury bowled Central Districts out for 86 on the back of legspinner Todd Astle’s 5 for 36 to register a 71-run win. At one point, Astle and offspinner Tim Johnston were both on a hat-trick in consecutive overs as Central Districts stumbled from 41 for 2 to 42 for 6. Johnston returned figures of 3 for 33 as Central Districts were skittled for their lowest score against Canterbury.

Henry Nicholls struck a 205-ball 98 and surpassed 2000 first-class runs for Canterbury, while wicketkeeper Cam Fletcher chipped in with a patient 58. Left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel finished with 5 for 118 to finish with match figures of 10 for 159.
