Auckland beat Northern Districts by six wickets at Mount Maunganui thanks to 91 from Bradley Cachopa. His 117-ball innings set up Auckland's chase. The captain Gareth Hopkins, who made 25 not out, shared an unbeaten stand of 62 with Zimbabwean Colin de Grandhomme, 38 not out, to guide his side home with two overs to spare. Northern Districts had been bowled out for 241 thanks to 3 for 35 from Andre Adams. They had been 4 for 2, with Brad Wilson and James Marshall both out first ball, but Hamish Marshall made a 110-ball 83 to guide his side to a competitive total.

Wellington had made 205 for 8 from 46 overs against Central Districts before rain prevented any further play in Napier. Michael Pollard made 114 not out from 137 balls before the weather struck.

Not a ball was bowled between Canterbury and Otago due to the poor weather in Rangiora.
