Men's One-Day final

  • The Auckland and Canterbury totals were the 2nd and third highest in One Day Finals after the 354-5 that CD scored against Canterbury in 2004-05
  • Auckland and Canterbury’s totals were their highest against each other in One Day matches
  • The match aggregate of 664 is second only to the 781 scored in the Canterbury v Otago match at Timaru last season and the highest in a Final eclipsing the 621 scored in the Auckland v Otago Final in 2007-08
  • Lou Vincent’s innings of 153 is the 2nd highest in a Final behind Brendon McCullum’s 170 for Otago v Auckland in the 2007-08 Final
  • There was a sense of déjà vu as Rob Nicol and Dean Brownlie added 136 for the 3rd wicket – this was exactly the same as they added for the 3rd wicket in the Semi-final a week earlier
  • The 6 run margin of victory was the 3rd closest in a Final after the 2 run win by Canterbury over Auckland in 1999-00 and the 3 run win by Canterbury over Wellington in 1991-92
  • 136 run partnerships were the flavour of the day as Lou Vincent and Greg Todd added 136 for Auckland’s 4th wicket
  • Colin de Grandhomme as caught off the last ball of Auckland’s 47th over only for a no ball to be called for too many players outside the circle. They can 2 off this ball and de Grandhomme hit the extra ball for 6. In all he scored an extra 23 runs off 8 balls, a costly error by Canterbury

Rob Nicol

  • Rob Nicol’s season aggregate of 648 is 2nd only to the 687 scored by Nathan Astle in 1995-96
  • He scored 5 consecutive innings of 50 or more during the season to equal the New Zealand record in One Day matches
  • He became just the 4th player to score a century and take 4 wickets in the same match when scoring 105 and taking 4-51 against CD at New Plymouth
  • He is just the 9th player to score 300 or more runs and take 15 or more wickets in a season. Using a formula of runs x wickets he has a tally of 9,720 putting him well ahead of the next best, Justin Vaughan who scored 378 runs and took 19 wickets for Auckland in the 1994-95 season, for a tally of 7,182

Lou Vincent

  • Lou Vincent’s tally of 642 runs for the season leaves him 3rd on the all time record behind Astle and Nicol
  • He is just the 2nd player after Ross Taylor in 2005-06 to score 3 centuries in a season
  • He is the first player to score more than one innings of 150 or more in New Zealand One Day cricket
  • He has now score 985 runs for Auckland against Canterbury (including 374 in 3 innings this season) so is poised to become just the 3rd player to have scored 1,000 runs for one association against another after Mathew Sinclair (1,164 CD v C) and James Marshall (1,051 ND v C)
  • He equaled Matt Horne’s record of 4 consecutive scores of 50 or more for Auckland when he finished the season with innings of 112 v W, 62 v C, 66 v O and 153 v C and is poised to equal the New Zealand record of 5 consecutive half-centuries
  • In contrast to his efforts against Canterbury the 66 he scored against Otago in the Semi-final was his first half-century against them in his 17th innings
