The second Test between India and South Africa in Bangalore ended in a draw after a fourth successive day's play was washed out.

Early rain on the fifth day prompted the umpires to abandon the match shortly before lunch, with only 81 overs bowled.

India had reached 80-0 after bowling South Africa out for 214 on day one.

India go into the third Test in Nagpur, which starts on 25 November, with a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

"It's a pity we lost four days after being in such a strong position," said India captain Virat Kohli.
