Final day in Port Elizabeth washed out - Cricket News
Rain doesn't allow play on the final day of the second Test at Port Elizabeth.
A wet outfield prevented any play on the final day of the second Test between South Africa and the West Indies at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday (December 30). 

The match ended with the visitors on 275 for 9 in its first innings in reply to South Africa's 417 for 8 declared.
 
While South Africa's captain, Hashim Amla, said a result would have been “on the cards” he was satisfied with South Africa's performance. 

Denesh Ramdin, the West Indian captain, on the other hand believed West Indies bowled much better in Port Elizabeth than in the first Test in Centurion and lauded the centuries scored by Marlon Samuels and Kraigg Brathwaite.

South Africa takes a 1-0 leading into the third Test, starting on Friday in Cape Town.
