Cricket Second Test between South Africa and West Indies ends in draw

The second Test between South Africa and the West Indies has been drawn, with no play possible on the final day in Port Elizabeth.

The hosts went into day five still hoping that they could seal the victory and the series, with the Windies on 275-9 in response to South Africa's first-innings total of 417-8 declared.

However, Hashim Amla's men were never given the opportunity to try and seal an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series as inclement weather ensured a washout.

The second Test has been heavily affected by rain, and the combination of further downpours and a wet outfield on Tuesday meant that the Windies lived to fight another day.

Windies opener Kraigg Brarthwaite was named man of the match after scoring 106 as the tourists' response initially got off to a strong start.

South Africa will now attempt to ensure a series triumph in the third and final Test, which starts at Newlands in Cape Town on Friday.
