Manchester - The second Twenty20 international between England and South Africa here at Old Trafford on Monday was abandoned due to persistent rain.

Full scorecard

The match was reduced to nine overs per side and South Africa were led by a spectacular 47 not out off 30 balls from Hashim Amla as they notched up 77 for five wickets.

Steven Finn took two for 17 from his two overs as the batsmen and fielding side struggled in the greasy conditions, with Jacques Kallis (13 not out) helping to boost the score at the end with a seven-ball cameo.

The rain showed no sign of abating as England's batsmen took the field and they never got going, with opener Craig Kieswetter swiping desperately at Morné Morkel's first over.

England were 29 for two off 4.1 overs when the umpires, aware that five balls were required to force a result under the Duckworth-Lewis method, called the players off the field.

South Africa won the first match on Saturday and can seal a series victory in the third game on Wednesday ahead of the September 18-October 7 Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

Teams:

England: Craig Kieswetter (wicketkeeper), Alex Hales, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Jonathan Bairstow, Samit Patel, Stuart Broad (captain), Graeme Swann, Steven Finn, Jade Dernbach

South Africa: Richard Levi, Jacques Kallis, Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers (capt/wicketkeeper), JP Duminy, Justin Ontong, Albie Morkel, Johan Botha, Robin Peterson, Dale Steyn, Morné Morkel

Umpires: Richard Illingworth (ENG) and Rob Bailey (ENG)

TV umpire: Tim Robinson (ENG)

Match referee: Andy Pycroft (ZIM)
