Dunedin: The fourth one-day international cricket match between New Zealand and South Africa was postponed today because of rain. The match was rescheduled to tomorrow, when rain and strong winds are expected to ease. New Zealand lead the six-match series 2-1 after winning the second match at Christchurch by five wickets and the third at Wellington by five runs. South Africa won the opening match at Auckland by five wickets. The start of today's day-night encounter was repeatedly delayed because of rain, driven by southerly winds gusting more than 100kph. Umpires signaled when rain briefly abated that a shortened match might be possible but further showers forced the game's postponement. Earlier, South African captain Graeme Smith won the toss for the fourth time in the series and asked New Zealand to bat. New Zealand made one change to their starting lineup from the third match, resting medium pacer Daryl Tuffey and giving Michael Mason his first start in a one-day international in New Zealand. South Africa named Jacques Rudolph in place of Ashwell Prince and Lance Klusener in place of Shaun Pollock, who has a groin injury. (AP)
