The Hobart Hurricanes crushed previously unbeaten Northern Districts by 86 runs in this evening's Champions League Twenty20 Group B match in Raipur.
Kiwi side Northern Districts, who were on a winning streak from qualifying and claimed victory in their first game of the tournament, won the toss and chose to field.
They were only able to take three wickets in the Hurricanes' innings as Aiden Blizzard (62 runs off 43 balls) and Shoaib Malik (45 off 22) powered the Australian Hurricanes to 178-3 after a slow start. Tim Paine also contributed 43 off 34.
Recent Big Bash League finalists Hobart now have a record of two wins and a loss from their three games and still harbour hopes of reaching the semi-finals.
