The second Test between India and South Africa ended in a damp draw after cyclonic rains and a wet outfield ensured not a single ball could be bowled for a fourth successive day at Bengaluru's M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday.

- Scorecard

Due to the inclement weather, no play has been possible since 81 overs were bowled on the opening day of what was South African batsman AB de Villiers' 100th Test match.

Play was due to start at 9:15 a.m. (0345 GMT) on the final day but the umpires decided to call off the match after a final inspection at 11:30 a.m.

India, who lead the four-match series 1-0, were 80 for no loss in response to South Africa's first innings total of 214.

The third Test is in Nagpur and starts on November 25.
