Persistent rain for about 14 hours forced a stalemate at the University Oval in Dunedin. South Africa desperate to pull off a victory with 8 more wickets to take couldn’t get to bowl even a single ball on the fifth and final day of the First Test Match at Dunedin.

New Zealand asked to chase a target of 401 batted out 41 overs safely yesterday to come up with 137 for 2. The fifth day was abandoned during the post lunch session with no chances of the rain ceasing and the outfield taking plenty of water.

South Africa Captain Graeme Smith who scored 53 and 115 was named the Man of the Match. The second Test Match of The National Bank Series between New Zealand and South Africa starts from the 15th of March at Hamilton.
