9:55pm AEDT: Play is set to resume as scheduled, the rain has stayed clear during the lunch break and we are now 5 minutes away from the action!
9pm AEDT: The players have taken an early lunch, but the news is otherwise good, with a start time set for 1pm local time (10pm AEDT), weather and light permitting of course!
8:30pm AEDT: Still raining in Johannesburg unfortunately, there is hope that the existing weather will move along in the next half hour, though it would likely take the ground staff at least an hour to get the ground fit for play.
7:30pm AEDT: The rain subsided briefly and the covers were being removed, only for the rain to return within minutes and they are now back in place.
7pm AEDT: Confirmed the start has been delayed. Covers are still on and the rain looks like it will be around for a while. Will update when news comes to hand.
And the news is not good I'm afraid, a lot of rain around this morning and its still coming down consistently at the moment. A 10am start definitely wont happen, latest reports suggest there won't be any play before lunch.
Welcome to the live coverage of the 5th and final day of the 2nd Test between South Africa and Australia from The Wanderers, Johannesburg.
