No play on third day in Durban

Wet underfoot conditions force abandonment with New Zealand stuck on 15 for 2 in reply to South Africa’s 263

A wet outfield prevented any play on the third day of the first Test between South Africa and New Zealand at Kingsmead in Durban on Sunday (August 21).
 
New Zealand stayed on 15 for 2 in reply to South Africa's first-innings total of 263 as the rain, which started falling at lunch on Saturday, continued through the rest of the second day and into Sunday morning. Although it was bright and sunny at the scheduled resumption of play on Sunday, widespread muddy areas rendered play impossible.
 
After an inspection by Richard Illingworth and Ian Gould, the umpires, at midday (1000 GMT), it was announced that underfoot conditions remained treacherous, with water coming up to the surface on footfall.



Following a further inspection two hours later, it was decided conditions would not improve in time for play to get under way.
 
The forecast is encouraging for the last two days of the Test, and if the wet patches are addressed, there is the genuine prospect of play over Monday and Tuesday.
 
Only 99.4 overs out of a scheduled 270 have been possible in the match, but with a potential 196 overs still to be bowled if the weather permits and with the bowlers having dominated play thus far, the possibilities are immense.
