Bad light brought an early end to Day One with South Africa 255 for two and the weather worsened overnight meaning the covers stayed on all day, with any hope of play finally abandoned shortly after 4pm local time.
Play will start half an hour early on Day Three, weather permitting, with Hashim Amla 10 runs from his century and Jacques Kallis alongside him on 84.
While South Africa remained in a strong position, they suffered a blow after the first day's play with the news JP Duminy ruptured an Achilles tendon in the warm-down, leaving them with only 10 batsmen. Francois du Plessis will field in Duminy’s place.
