South Africa needed a win against the West Indies in Monday’s World Cup fixture at Hampshire Bowl, Southampton.
The Proteas who have lost all three of their matches had hopes of salvaging a victory against the Windies but those hopes took a nose dive as the match was abandoned due to persistent rain.
West Indies skipper Jason Holder elected to bowl first after winning the toss and the decision seems to have paid off as the Windies claimed two early wickets in Hashim Amla and Aiden Markram both dismissed for 6 and 5 respectively.
Play was stopped after 7.3 overs and South African were 29/2, de Kock on 17* and du Plessis 0*
Proteas and Windies each earn one point
It would take some form of miracle for Proteas to make semi-finals at this rate, their next match is against Afghanistan on Saturday and their next three fixtures after that are as follows:
South Africa vs New Zealand 06/19/2019
South African vs Pakistan 06/23/2019
South Africa vs Sri Lanka 06/28/2019
