South Africa-New Zealand Test called off

There will be no play on day five of the first Test between South Africa and New Zealand in Durban, with a wet outfield resulting in the match ending in a draw.

Drizzle ended play early on the second day with the Black Caps 15-2 in their first innings at Kingsmead and, although the wicket was dry enough for play, soggy patches elsewhere have ended any chance of further play.

Stand-in South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said: “[It’s] very disappointing. We were dying to get out there, but we respect the decision.

“It’s a hard decision. Player safety comes first and that’s why the umpires make the call.”
