England, New Zealand Head to Cricket Decider Tied 0-0 After Draw

Don't Miss Out —

March 18 (Bloomberg) -- England and New Zealand will enter the final match of their cricket series tied at 0-0 after the last day of the second Test in Wellington was abandoned because of rain.

No play was possible on day five at the Basin Reserve, with the home team trailing by 49 runs after following on. Only 35 overs were possible yesterday because of rain as the Black Caps, who were dismissed for 254 in reply to England’s first innings 465 on day three, reached 162-2 in their second innings.

The final Test at Auckland’s Eden Park starts in four days. New Zealand, which has lost eight of its past 13 elite five-day matches, last won a series against England 14 years ago.

The teams also drew the rain-affected opener in Dunedin as England held out after trailing by 293 runs on the first innings.
