Hawke Cup 2020/21
The North Otago Hawke Cup team after their victory against Nelson to take the Hawke Cup for the second time

The Hawke Cup team results for 2020-2021 continued the previous success that the team have had over the past few seasons, this time winning the Hawke Cup for the third time in a big win over holders Nelson at Saxton Oval.

This season a number of milestones were brough up with none more important than an outstanding individual effort from veteran Jeremy Smith led his team to victory over Southland, its first ever in Southland, and the right to challenge for the Hawke Cup. Smith took 11 wickets and scored 57no in the first innings, a feat only matched by John Reid in 1958.

Earlier in the season after losing by first innings to Otago Country at home, they then lost no further games until the defence against Hawkes Bay in 2021.
