DURBAN, South Africa, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -22nd Augst,2016) - 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 for two in reply to South Africa's first innings total of 263.

After an inspection before the scheduled resumption on Monday, the umpires said underfoot conditions remained soft on an outfield which was re-seeded in June and suffered damage during a freak storm in July and rain on Saturday and Sunday. A further inspection was planned for noon.
