The third unofficial Test between India A and New Zealand A  in Whangarei ended in a draw after rain forced the fourth and final day to be abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Honours were shared in a series which saw both teams win one Test each.

Ravikumar Samarth (27 not out) and Ankit Bawane (5 not out) went to stumps on day three with India A still trailing the host side by 37 runs.

On Sunday, Cam Fletcher’s career-best 103 gave New Zealand A a 75-run first-innings lead, despite Krishanappa Gowtham’s six-wicket haul.

India A will now play three unofficial ODIs against New Zealand A starting December 7 at Mount Maunganui.
