The second four-day match between India A and New Zealand A at Hamilton’s Seddon Park has ended in a draw after rain washed out the second day and limited action on the fourth.

Karun Nair’s India A ended day three on 7/0 after New Zealand A declared on 303/7 in 106 overs, and on a rain-hit fourth day they progressed to 159/2 in 46 overs before a draw was called.

R Samarth scored an unbeaten 50 from 83 balls, with seven fours and a six, and Nair was on 8 when the match ended.
