Day two washed out in Brisbane

The second day of the first Test match between Australia and South Africa in Brisbane is abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Rain has washed out the second day of the first Test match between Australia and South Africa in Brisbane.

South Africa finished day one on 255-2 with unbeaten scores of 90 and 84 from Hashim Amla and Jacques Kallis putting the tourists in command of the match.

However, they were not given the opportunity to build on their dominance as rain battered the Brisbane outfield to leave the umpires with no option but to call off play for the day.

It is the first time in 29 years that the Gabba has seen a complete wash-out due to rain.

Play is expected to resume on Sunday morning.
