Pulford guides Spirit home

Kate Pulford grabbed a wicket before leading State Northern Spirit to a Twenty20 victory over State Otago Sparks with a knock of 41.

Natalie Dodd claimed three wickets for 16 runs as Otago made 100 for nine at Mt Maunganui.

Sarah Tsukigawa made 29 and Clare Taylor 26 as they batted through the 20 overs after winning the toss and electing to take the crease.

By the time Pulford fell to Emma Campbell, in the last ball of the 12th over, ND were in sight of victory, which was claimed after Nicola Browne added an unbeaten 26.
