Port Elizabeth - Only 30 minutes of play took place between South Africa and the West Indies on day two of the second Test at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.

LIVE SCORING: SA v West Indies

Umpires called stumps at 17:00 after it rained throughout much of the day.

At 13:00, the players were forced off the field with South Africa on 289 for three after six overs, and no further play occurred.

After a 90 minute delay, South Africa resumed on 270 for two at noon with Faf du Plessis on strike, one run short of his century. He clipped a delivery from Jerome Taylor behind square for four to bring up his fourth Test ton.

His joy was to be short-lived as he got a faint edge off the next ball and was caught behind. Du Plessis faced 230 balls for his 103, smashing 13 fours and two sixes.

Hashim Amla was unbeaten on 23 and AB de Villiers on nine when rain stopped play.
