THAT’S A WRAP!
Thanks for joining us for our coverage of the Proteas v West Indies Cricket World Cup match, sorry there was no action, BUT the Proteas bag their first point of the tournament, which is some relief!
Stay tuned to our website, as Sport24’s Lloyd Burnard will get all the reaction from the World Cup!
Proteas next match: v Afghanistan on Saturday, June 15 (14:30 SA time)
Tomorrow: Sri Lanka v Bangladesh (11:30 SA time)
FAF AFTER THE MATCH:
“Very disappointing but we 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. They (West Indies) done well to get the two wickets. It always bodes well for the teams batting second.”
The Proteas will take on Afghanistan in their next Cricket World Cup match on Saturday, June 15.
The match has been called off at the Rose Bowl with only 7.3 overs played.
Each team will earn a point.
South Africa bag their first points of the Cricket World Cup, but still winless with five matches to go.
Looks like the game will be called off.
We officially have 52 minutes remaining for the start of a 20 over game.
For play to resume: the rain needs to stop, the ground needs to be dry at 18:00 SA time.
Wouldn’t mind getting a point for a washout here. Put some daylight between us and Afghanistan.

In a result of a game being abandoned, each team will receive a point.
But for now, it’s still raining and no call has been made…
The covers coming off at the Rose Bowl and there will be an inspection at 16:45 (SA time)
RAIN UPDATE FROM ROSE BOWL: The covers were starting to come off and it was announced that there would be a pitch inspection at 16:15 (SA time), but the brollies around the ground have gone up again with the rain starting to fall once more @Sport24news @news

Word has it that the covers are coming off, however, there is a lot of work that still needs to be done by the ground staff.
The Proteas have are looking for a win after losing three consecutive games
UPDATE: The latest update from the Rose Bowl is that it’s still raining and the covers haven’t moved.
Players and officials are now taking lunch.
If there’s any more play today then we’re certain to see overs reduced.
It’s raining on South Africa at 29/2/7.3 with #imAmla 6 (7) and Markram 5 (10) sent back by bouncy Cottrell.
