6:00 pm on 27 December 2010

Auckland have extended their lead at the top of the domestic 20/20 cricket competition and secured a home final by beating Northern Districts.

The Aces easily won their HRV Cup clash in Mt Maunganui by eight wickets.

Central Districts climbed above the beaten Northern Knights into outright second with a 29-run win over Wellington at the Basin Reserve, which leaves the Firebirds second to bottom on the points ladder.

Rain washed out the match between last-placed Otago and fourth-placed Canterbury in Alexandra.
