Durban - No play was possible before lunch on the fourth day of the first Test
between South Africa and New Zealand at Kingsmead on Monday.
No play had taken place since rain fell during the lunch break on the
second day, when New Zealand were on 15/2 in reply to South
Africa's first innings total of 263.
After an inspection before the scheduled resumption on Monday, the
umpires said underfoot conditions remained soft on an outfield which was
re-seeded in June and suffered damage during a freak storm in July and
rain on Saturday and Sunday.
A further inspection was planned for noon.
