Dhaka - The second Test between South Africa and Bangladesh ended in a draw in Dhaka on Monday after bad weather washed out play on the last four days.

The final day's play at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium was called off on Monday morning due to a wet outfield despite the sun shining in the Bangladesh capital.

Play was possible only on the first day when Bangladesh, who won the toss and elected to bat, scored 246 for eight.

The lone bright spot in the match was fast bowler Dale Steyn becoming only the second South African after Shaun Pollock to claim 400 Test wickets.

With the first Test in Chittagong also drawn after wet weather washed out the last two days, the two-match series ended 0-0.
