Rain rules in Port Elizabeth

The second Test between South Africa and West Indies ended in a draw after the fifth and final day was called off without a ball being bowled in Port Elizabeth.

Heavy rain overnight meant an extremely wet outfield and, with little chance of the surface being fit for purpose, the draw was announced at 1pm local time.

South Africa head to the third and final match, which begins in Cape Town on Friday, 1-0 up.

In a contest heavily affected by rain, West Indies had ended day four on 275 for nine , thanks in the main to centuries from man-of-the-match Kraigg Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels.

The pair had kept the Windies in touch after 121 from Dean Elgar and 103 from Francois Du Plessis in South Africa’s first innings led them to 417.
