The fourth day's play in the first Test between South Africa and Pakistan was abandoned after a lunchtime pitch inspection by the umpires at the sodden Wanderers ground in Johannesburg yesterday. The rain seems certain to ensure the match will end in a draw, with South Africa, who led by 35 runs on the first innings, yet to start their second innings.

FIRST TEST (Johannesburg): No play yesterday (fourth day; rain). South Africa 364; Pakistan 329.
