Rain forces abandonment of WI – South Africa game at Rose Bowl in England

SOUTHAMPTON, England  – Rain has forced a no-result in West Indies’ third match of the World Cup against South Africa at the Rose Bowl here Monday.

Play was halted in the eighth over with South Africa stumbling on 29 for two, and persistent rain here left match officials with little choice but to abandon the encounter at 4:15 pm.

Left-handed opener Quinton de Kock was unbeaten on 17 and partnered by captain Faf du Plessis who was yet to score.

Left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell had given West Indies the perfect start when he knocked over opener Hashim Amla for six and Aiden Markram for five, to claim two for 18 from his four overs.
