Pretoria - Rain had the final say in the much-anticipated One Day International series between South Africa and India, with the final game abandoned due to rain after the first innings in Centurion on Wednesday.

South Africa, led by Quinton de Kock -- with his third century in a row -- lifted the Proteas to 301 for 8 in their 50 overs, but as India were due to start their chase, the heavens opened.

Earlier, centurion from the previous match, Hashim Amla (9 runs, 16b, 3x4) fell early to the bowling of Mohammed Shami.

Davids did not last long and was outdone by an Ishant Sharma delivery, and caught in the slips by Suresh Raina.

Three balls later, and new batsman JP Duminy (0 runs, 3 balls) was out in identical fashion --bowled Ishant Sharma and caught Raina -- as the Proteas fell to 28 for three inside the first ten overs.
