The second round of the domestic one day cricket competition takes place today with the defending champions Northern Districts on the road against Central Districts in Palmerston North.
Northern got off to a great start with a tight away win over Auckland on Sunday, pipping the hosts at Colin Maiden Park by just 2 runs and 8 balls, which ND coach Grant Bradburn says was very important.
Bradburn maintains there's plenty of firepower right across the one day competition and CD, who won the HRV Cup last year before coming up short in the final against Auckland this month, are not just a good Twenty20 side...
