A crowd of nearly 1000 flocked to the twenty20 Super Smash cricket matches between the Otago sides and their Central District counterparts at the University of Otago Oval on Friday.

The Otago Sparks women’s team had a seven-wicket win against the Central Hinds but the Central Stags beat the Otago Volts by 53 runs.

Reporter Shawn McAvinue photographed fans on the embankment enjoying the action.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
