The start of the fourth day’s play in the second Test match between India and South Africa in Bengaluru on Tuesday was delayed due to a wet outfield, with an inspection scheduled for 10am.
A depression over the Bay of Bengal has resulted in severe floods in Chennai, with the effects also being felt in Bengaluru. Although it had stopped raining on Tuesday morning, the ground had yet to be drained.
The second and third day of the match have already been lost to rain.
Replying to South Africa’s first-innings score of 214 all out, India had ended the opening day at 80 for no loss. Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay were batting, with scores of 45 and 28, respectively.
