Day-III washed out

BANGALORE: The second Test between India and South Africa in Bangalore was headed for a tame draw after bad weather washed out play for the second successive day on Monday.

The umpires called off the scheduled third day’s play, without a ball being bowled, during the lunch break as incessant rain left large puddles of water on the outfield at the Chinnaswamy stadium.

The entire second day’s play was also abandoned on Sunday. On the first day, Proteas were shot out for 214 after being sent in to bat in overcast conditions and India replied with 80-0 by stumps.
