    Chapman ton helps Aces to top of T20 table

    Mark Chapman has scored 101, his maiden Twenty20 century, as Auckland beat Canterbury by seven runs to go top of the Super Smash table.

    Mark Chapman hit his maiden Twenty20 century to help Auckland back to the top of the domestic Super Smash cricket competition.

    The Aces' seven-run win over Canterbury in Christchurch on Monday took them two points clear of defending champions Wellington and Northern Districts.

    Batting first, Auckland reached 168-5 at Hagley Oval, with Chapman's 101 the stand-out knock, the 23-year-old left-hander smacking six sixes and three fours.

    But having reached three figures, he saw his 58-ball innings come to an immediate end as he cut an Andrew Ellis delivery to Todd Astle in the gully.

    In reply, Canterbury had looked in with a good chance of victory at 123-4 in the 16th over and Tom Latham on 46.

    But Latham's departure, bowled by left-arm seamer Ben Lister, swung the game the Aces' way and the Kings' chase ended at 161-8.
