Rain washes out second day

Play was abandoned on the second day of the second Test between Australia and South Africa without a ball being bowled following incessant rain in Hobart on Sunday.

The umpires made a ground inspection at 2 p.m. local time (0300 GMT) and decided to call off the day’s play, with the start scheduled 30 minutes earlier for each of the remaining three days.

South Africa holds an 86-run lead after routing Australia for 85 and fiishing the first day at 171 for five. Temba Bavuma will resume on Monday on 38 with Quinton de Kock not out 28. — AFP
