Rain ruins Day 1 of NZ-England Test
Bad light and heavy rain prevented play on Day One of the opening Test between New Zealand and England yesterday
The Black Caps won the toss and chose to bowl in overcast conditions, hoping for early swing, but conditions worsened and the teams were unable to take the field.
Play was officially called off after an inspection at the tea interval.
Sunny weather is forecast for today, which may favour the English batsmen.
