Rain plays spoilsport as S. Africa clinch Test series vs New Zealand

IANS logoIANS 29-03-2017

South Africa were struggling at 80/5 in their second innings with Faf du Plessis (15) and Quinton de Kock (15) at the crease.

But continuous rain forced the umpires to abandon play without a ball being bowled.

Earlier, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson struck a brilliant 176 to give his side a 175-run lead in the first innings.

Following the draw, South Africa clinched the three-match series 1-0 having won the second Test in Wellington by eight wickets.
