Cyclone Sandra made its presence felt in the penultimate round of the Ford Trophy, with rain washing out two of the day's scheduled games and forcing the third to be abandoned. All six teams got two points each, which confirmed play-off spots for leaders Auckland, Northern Districts and Canterbury. Although fourth-placed Wellington are ahead of Central Districts by five points, both sides are in contention for the last play-off spot in the final round of games to be played on Wednesday.

In this round, the matches between Auckland and Northern Districts in Auckland and Central Districts and Wellington in New Plymouth were washed out without a ball bowled.

In Dunedin, Canterbury got to 159 for 4 in 39.5 overs after being put in by Otago. George Worker was unbeaten with 73 at the top of the order while Shanan Stewart had made 38. The pair helped their side recover from 84 for 4 before the rain had its say.
