Rain looks likely to drown any chances of play starting on the last day of the first cricket test betweeen the Blackcaps and the West Indies in Dunedin.

Overnight rain and hail has left the University Oval sodden and with rain expected to continue throughout the day the match will likely end in a draw.

New Zealand are 44 for two with a lead of 69 runs in the second innings.
