Dunedin - The first Test between New Zealand and South Africa ended in a draw on Sunday as steady rain ruled out any chance of play on the final day.

The match was evenly poised at the end of the fourth day with New Zealand on 137 for two, requiring a further 264 runs for victory, while South Africa needed to take another eight wickets.

The second Test starts in Hamilton on Thursday.
