The first cricket Test between New Zealand and South Africa in Dunedin is evenly poised but a "crazy" session might just tilt it in one side's favour.

South Africa will resume on Saturday, the fourth day, on 38-1, a lead of five runs.

However, the MetService is predicting some rain for Saturday afternoon and also rain on Sunday.

New Zealand wicket-keeper BJ Watling says they are not watching the weather.

"You just can't play a game of cricket expecting it to rain because sometimes it doesn't and you get caught out there, it's just the nature of the beast."

The match was in an even position, he said.

"It's a bit of a grind out there. It's not a free-flowing wicket as such.

"The game's sitting 50:50 and a crazy session might change it."
