The situation is pretty similar for most of the ongoing Test series as wet outfield had stopped play in Day Three of First Test between South Africa and New Zealand. Day Three was wiped out due to persistent rains at Kingsmead on Sunday. New Zealand remained on 15 for two in reply to South Africa’s first innings total of 263.

Although the sun was shining at the scheduled resumption of play, there were extensive wet, muddy areas on a field which was re-seeded in June and was flooded by a freak storm in July. After an inspection by the umpires at midday, it was announced that underfoot conditions remained treacherous, with water coming up to the surface. Following a further inspection two hours later, it was decided conditions would not improve in time for play to get under way.

Dale Steyn was back in action after staying away from International cricket due to injury. He picked two wickets before the rains stopped the play. New Zealand are now trailing by 248 runs. Steyn dismissed off both the opening batsman Martin Guptill and Tom Latham for single digits. Steyn had Latham caught at first slip by Hashim Amla for four off the second ball of his fourth over. He followed up in his next over with a full in-swinger which trapped Guptill leg before wicket for seven.
