Bangalore - Bad weather has delayed the start of the third day's play in the rain-ravaged second Test between India and South Africa in Bangalore on Monday, with a wash-out looming on the horizon.

Covers were in place at the Chinnaswamy stadium at the scheduled start time of 9:30 am (06:00 SA time), as incessant rain left large puddles of water on the outfield.

The entire second day's play was washed out on Sunday and more wet weather is forecast over the southern city caused by a 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.

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