Match abandoned due to rain

New Zealand v South Africa - play abandoned due to rain

The storms that had been scheduled to hit North Island duly did, and the fifth one-day international between New Zealand and South Africa, at Auckland, was rescheduled for tomorrow.

New Zealand lead the series 3-1, and South Africa desperately need to win this match if they are to have any chance of drawing level in the six-match series. The rescheduled match is to be a day game, not a day-nighter.
