New Zealand were unable to make a winning start to their Test series against South Africa at home after the first match was washed out by heavy rain on the final day.
The game at Dunedin saw the hosts put up a hefty 341 in the first innings handing them the advantage after the visitors were thwarted at 308.
Kane Williamson's contribution of 130 helped the home team to a perfect start to the series but he will have to wait till the second game before adding to his runs.
Dean Elgar was the stand out performer for the visitors as he put up an encouraging 89 on the scorecard.
Chasing the game in the second innings, South Africa managed to create a lead of 191 when rain disrupted play on Day five disallowing them to add to their advantage.
The Kiwis might feel slightly unfortunate having reduced their opponents to 224 for six wickets before the game was cancelled.
New Zealand's star batsman Ross Taylor has been ruled out of the second Test in Wellington following a calf injury with veteran Neil Broom set to take his place.
However, the former Kiwis skipper could return for the final game of the three-match series at Hamilton on March 25.
Bowler Trent Boult is another doubt for the next game as he continues to recover from a hip problem. A late decision regarding the 27-year-old's availability will be made prior to the start of the match on March 16.
