2nd Test: India vs South Africa called off due to poor playing conditions from incessant rain

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 18 November 2015, 14:06 IST

The second test match between India and South Africa at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium at Bengaluru has been abandoned due to poor playing conditions. The umpires made the decision at 11:30 am IST on Wednesday 18 November, the fifth and final day of the test match.

Before it started to rain on the second day of the test, India were in control of the proceedings on 80 for no loss, in reply to South Africa's total of 214 in what was AB de Villiers' 100th test.

Day 1 of the test was the only day which saw action. Here are the highlights of the first day:

-Virat Kohli was bold in his move to put the South Africans in to bat after winning the toss. The last time this happened was in 1974 in a match against the West Indies. The 19 tests played at the M Chinnaswamy stadium since then have always seen the side winning the toss bat first.

-South Africa were bowled out for a paltry 214. AB de Villiers top scored with 85.

-Ravindra Jadeja had the best bowling figures for India - 16 overs, 2 maidens, 50 runs, 4 wickets.

-At the end of day's play, Indian openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan were batting on 28 and 45 respectively.
