NELSON:– Rain washed away the first day of the three-day cricket match between Pakistan and New Zealand A here Friday. “Constant rain on Thursday and continuing showers throughout Friday halted the game at Saxton Oval as Pakistan waits at least another day to kick-start their two-test tour of New Zealand”, local media reported. Earlier, New Zealand A won the toss and decided to bat but due to rain, the play was officially abandoned without a ball being bowled. The NZ Met office predicted more rain on Saturday and there is little chance for the game to start.–Agencies
