No play again in India-SA Test

Bangalore - Play was abandoned without a ball being bowled for the third successive day on Tuesday as the rain-ravaged second Test between India and South Africa in Bangalore turned into a damp squib.

Incessant rains, which had washed out play on the second and third days, relented to allow the ground staff at the Chinnaswamy stadium to work on the drenched outfield despite overcast skies.

The umpires decided to resume the match at 10:30, but another sharp shower brought the covers back on the pitch and led to another wasted day for the players and fans.

With just the final day's play remaining - weather permitting - the Test is headed for a tame draw.

Play took place only on the first day on Saturday when South Africa were shot out for 214 after being sent in to bat, 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 earlier this month.

The third Test is to be played in Nagpur from November 25.
