Northern Districts and Central Districts shared two points each after rain caused their Super Smash match to be abandoned in New Plymouth.

Only 20 overs were bowled in the match, that too with two interruptions. After Seth Rance‘s double-strike in the second over reduced Northern Districts to 8 for 2, opener Dean Brownlie added 40 runs for the third wicket with Corey Anderson (13). After Anderson was removed by Marty Kain, Brownlie fell two overs later but Daryl Mitchell scored a 37-ball 34 to make sure Northern Districts reached 137 after 20 overs. Rain stopped play in the 12th and 20th over, and poor weather forced the second innings to be abandoned entirely.

After two games, both teams were on six points, having won each of first games in the tournament.
