World Cup: Heartbreak for West Indies as rain washes out South Africa fixture

WC 2019: West Indies elect to field first against South Africa
Web Desk: The 15th match of the World Cup between inform West Indies and South Africa has been washed out due to rain.

When the rain arrived, Cottler has sent two batsmen of the South Africa to the pavilion. The Proteas were struggling on 29 in 7.3 overs.

“These are the worst. Both teams wanted to play and get results but you can't control the weather. For us it was important on a day like this to start not losing may wickets. It's like Test cricket. But they did well to get two wickets. [Shortage] favours the team that bats second. But even saying that if you get 30-35 overs, on a big ground you can defend. Lungi will be ready for the next match. will be good to have him back”, stated Faf du Plessis.

 

“Yeah really good start again by the bowlers. It's unfortunate the weather came. So far we've been getting new ball wickets. It's just a matter for our bowlers to hit the straps and continue doing what we're doing. We don't mind giving away runs. We're hoping Russell pulls up before the next game. [Three in three] would have probably been happy with that at the start of the tournament”, stated West Indian captain.
