--> The full scores for this match are not available
--> Wickets given to bowlers do not agree with batting scorecard for the Otago Under-20s second innings

Bowling figures not available in the Northern Districts Under-20s first innings
Northern Districts Under-20s needed to score 116 for the outright win but a 40 minute rain delay hampered the chase eventually finishing 26 runs short of their target with Otago Under-20s needing 2 more wickets to win the match outright
The newspaper source for this match did not include the continuation of the Northern Districts Under-20s first innings on the second day and had two Northern Districts Under-20s batsmen missing in their second innings which were probably Leggat and White
