South Africa vs West Indies match rained off

South Africa remains without a win at the World Cup after their match against West Indies was rained off.

The Proteas, who lost their first three games, reached 29-2 in the 7.3 overs possible in Southampton, reports BBC.

Sheldon Cottrell had Hashim Amla taken at slip for six and Aiden Markram caught down the leg side for five in claiming figures of 2-18.

Both teams take one point, South Africa's first of the tournament after three successive defeats.

South Africa stays second bottom of the table and West Indies climb two places to fifth. The top four sides will qualify for the semi-finals.

It is the second match to be abandoned because of rain, following the wash-out between Pakistan and Sri Lanka on Friday.

Rain is also forecast on Tuesday at Bristol, where Bangladesh meet Sri Lanka, and on Wednesday at Taunton, where Australia play Pakistan.

West Indies face England at Southampton on Friday, while South Africa take on Afghanistan at Cardiff on Saturday.
