Cricket-Rain delays start of final day in N.Zealand-S.Africa first test

WELLINGTON, March 12 (Reuters) - Heavy rain in Dunedin has delayed the start of the fifth and final day of the first test between New Zealand and South Africa at University Oval on Sunday.

South Africa were 224 for six in the second innings, a lead of 191 runs, with captain Faf du Plessis on 56 and Vernon Philander on one.

Play had been scheduled to start 30 minutes early at 1030 (2130 GMT), but with rain forecast for the entire day the likelihood of any play appeared remote. (Reporting by Greg Stutchbury; Editing by Ken Ferris)
