South Africa's clash with West Indies ABANDONED due to rain

South Africa's clash with West Indies ABANDONED due to rain

South Africa had slipped to 29 for two in the eighth over when rain stopped play in Southampton, and the match never resumed.

Ngidi pulled up with a tight hamstring after bowling just four overs in South Africa's shocking loss to Bangladesh at The Oval on June 2, and he missed Wednesday's six-wicket loss to India as well as Monday's washed out clash against the West Indies as a result.

Before the persistent rain settled, Quinton de Kock was not-out on 17 and Faf du Plessis on 0 after just seven balls faced.

Aiden Markram fenced a short ball to the keeper to give Cottrell his second breakthrough, and the difficulty of knowing how to pace the rest of their innings was bound to have played on South Africa's minds, given that they were nominally expected to see out a full 50 overs, but were nearly certainly going to find themselves defending their target in considerably less.

'Hash is a class player, ' Du Plessis said. That is a strong sign of us as a team, as a culture, and that is one aspect of performance.

Either way, South Africa would all too readily swap positions in the group table with West Indies.

"No, there's nothing else to be cleared out", said du Plessis. After they lost the first three games their confidence as a team will be a bit low, so we wanted to take a big advantage of that.

"Lungi will be ready for the next match. will be good to have him back".

"Luckily for us today there wasn't a lot of cricket, so we can throw him straight into the next game". 'It's simple. We need to be more consistent and more solid.
