Bangalore - Bad weather has delayed the start of the second day's play in the second Test between India and South Africa in Bangalore on Sunday.

A wet outfield at the Chinnaswamy stadium due to incessant light rain since early morning prevented both teams from doing their pre-match training on the ground.

Rain has been forecast for a major part of the Test due to the cyclonic depression over the Bay of Bengal.

On the rain-free first day, South Africa were shot out for 214 after being sent in to bat in overcast conditions and India replied with 80 for no loss by stumps.

India lead the four-match series after securing a 108-run win in the first Test in Mohali last week and will start the day on 80/0. 


Rain continues to fall in Bangalore and lunch has been taken.
