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.

A further inspection was planned for noon.
