Rain saves Proteas in Hamilton

Rain saved South Africa from a potential defeat on the final day of the third test in Hamilton. The Proteas were 80/5 going into Day 5, still 115 runs behind and with only their last recognised batting pair of Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock at the crease, the Black Caps would’ve fancied their chances.

However rain put paid to the Black Caps’ hopes with not a single ball being balled, and thus completed another successful tour for Du Plessis as captain, with South Africa taking the series 1-0 thanks to their win in the second test in Wellington.
