Persistent rain throughout the fifth day forced a draw in the second of the three-match Test series at Port Elizabeth on Tuesday between South Africa and West Indies. The draw helped South Africa keep the 1-0 lead in the series with a victory in the first game at Centurion by an innings and 220 runs.
West Indies won the toss and elected to field first as South Africa started on a flying note on Day 1 with opener, Dean Elgar scoring his third Test century before being dismissed off Kenroy Peters for 121, being the debut wicket for Peters. He was also followed by Faf du Plessis for his fourth century in the second day and was dismissed for 103 by Jerome Taylor. Both put up a 179-run stand for the second wicket before play was suspended for the day after just six overs being bowled.
Following their dismissal, South African batsmen couldn’t capitalise well enough as skipper, Hashim Amla could contribute only 33 while the other batsmen were dismissed for cheap. However, it was fast-bowler, Dale Steyn who surprised everyone with a quick-fire 58 off 28
