The third day of the first Test between New Zealand and South Africa was disrupted for about 30 minutes due to a fire alarm going off in the main grandstand, forcing an evacuation of the entire venue.
The alarm started going off at University Oval in Dunedin after the tea interval with South Africa 14 for one in their second innings, still 19 runs behind New Zealand's 341.
The main stand, which houses the changing rooms, was being evacuated before an announcement was made that the entire venue had to be evacuated, causing confusion among the players and crowd.
Hashim Amla was on nine, while Dean Elgar was five not out when play was stopped.
After play resumed in Dunedin, the two South African batsmen helped their team attain a slender lead of five runs until the end of day’s play.
