Cricket: Two wins apiece for Green Island and NEV

Dunedin senior cricket resumed on Saturday with teams showing off their ability in the shorter form of the game.

Four twenty/20 matches were held, with four clubs playing two matches each.

Green Island chased down 114 for victory against Kaikorai in the morning, before Ben Patston (61) and Jamie Munro (37) helped the team reach 192 for seven, to beat Albion (120 for six) by 72 runs in the afternoon.

Despite an impressive batting display by Tim Ford (57), Albion's total of 124 for four was not enough to prevent North East Valley chasing down the total, Lance Taylor the pick of NEV's batsmen, with 48.

North East Valley batsman Cameron Beel then hit 54 to help his side to 165 for nine in the afternoon, before dismissing Kaikorai for 145, to win by 20 runs.
