Rain in Christchurch has forced the domestic one day cricket playoff between Canterbury and Otago to be abandoned.
That means Canterbury go on to face Central Districts in Saturday's final in New Plymouth, as the second-placed team behind Central.
The match was reduced to 37 overs after rain held up the start of play at Hagley Oval, and an early lunch was taken.
But play was again held up by more rain, ending the match with Canterbury 108 for four after 26 overs, after losing the toss and being sent in to bat.
Heavy rain in Napier also forced both the Black Caps and Pakistan to train indoors on Wednesday, ahead of the second one day international.
Much of the outfield at McLean Park was underwater, which didn't bode well for the ODI - and in the end, not a ball was bowled.
The two teams have headed to Auckland for the third and final match at Eden Park on Sunday.
