Rain washes out bulk of day two

Only 15.2 overs were bowled on the second day of the Test between New Zealand and Zimbabwe at McLean Park before light, but persistent, rain set in to make further play impossible

Commentator: Keith Lane

New Zealnd win by an innings and 301 runs, bowling Zimbabwe out twice in a day, who would have thought that at the start of play today. New Zealand's biggest win in a Test match, and well deserved. For Zimbabwe a bit of a step backwards after making a good return to the test arena. It is of course Zimbabwe's biggest defeat in test matches, following the loss of an innings and 294 in Harare in the 2005/06 season.
