This is the first win of the Howick Pakuranga Premier Women’s season in the Prichard Cup limited over competition after their round 1 fixture was abandoned due to rain.

The Howick Pakuranga Premier men’s side travelled to Birkenhead War Memorial Park for the first day of their Round 2 fixture in the Tom Hellaby Two-Day Competition.

After losing the toss and going in for a bat, Howick Pakuranga lost four early wickets to a strong Birkenhead bowling line-up.

Howick Pakuranga had lost six wickets for 33 runs before Josh McGregor, 55 (108) and Azharudin Lambat, 76 (162) helped the side to a total first innings score of 200.
