Rain played spoilsport in New Zealand as one HRV Cup match was called off and the other abandoned without a ball being bowled.

In Dunedin, the game was originally reduced to 12 overs. Otago managed 77 for 5, led by Brendon McCullum's 32 from 26 balls. Left-arm spinner Anton Devcich opened the bowling for Northern Districts and picked up career best figures of 3 for 23 from his four overs.

After a second rain interruption, the game was further reduced to 11 overs-a-side, with Nothern Districts set a revised target of 82. But one over into Northern District's reply, a third and final showed ended proceedings and the points were shared.

The match between Central Districts and Canterbury at New Plymouth was called off without a ball being bowled.
