South Africa 255-2 (Amla 90no) v Australia
First Test, Brisbane, day two
Scorecard | Day One

There was no play possible on the second day of the opening Test between Australia and South Africa at the Gabba, Brisbane, due to rain.

Heavy rain hit the ground after the close of the first day and never went away, leaving the umpires with no choice but to call off the day's play early.

The opening day had belonged to South Africa as half-centuries from Alviro Petersen (64), Hashim Amla (90 not out) and Jacques Kallis (84 not out) steered the tourists to stumps on 255 for two.

Only Graeme Smith (10) fell cheaply but the Proteas rebounded to take the honours comfortably. Rain took the honours on day two.

The forecast for the rest of the match is dryer and brighter.
