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)


17:31

Massive news from Faf: Lungi Ngidi will be ready for the next match against Afghanistan!


17:30

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.” 


17:25

After this result, it looks like South Africa need a miracle to qualify for the semi-finals…


17:23

It’s bad news from the Hampshire Bowl as today’s match has now been abandoned ???

Proteas creep closer to CWC exit after Rose Bowl washout


17:18

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.


17:15

BREAKING: Match abandoned!


17:15

Looks like the game will be called off.


17:10

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.


17:02

Update from Sport24’s Lloyd Burnard:

RAIN UPDATE FROM ROSE BOWL: Any small chance there was of the players coming back on has now surely disappeared. It’s raining hard, and those fans who have waited around in the stands are leaving @Sport24news @News24

16:55

Wouldn’t mind getting a point for a washout here. Put some daylight between us and Afghanistan.

Let’s sing and dance!!

Rain, rain, go away

Come again another day

WI & SA want to play

Rain, rain go away#WIvsSA #CWC19

16:49

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…

 


16:47

Incredible atmosphere all over The Rose Bowl.

Most of the crowd still waiting, cheering anytime a cover is peeled off.@Rassie72 got a standing ovation for signing autographs.

Different level of love for the game here.

Sadly, the rain is back. #CWC19

16:46

This doesn’t look like good news… the covers are back on and there’s rain on


16:39

UPDATE:

The covers coming off at the Rose Bowl and there will be an inspection at 16:45 (SA time)


15:55

And it’s raining AGAIN!

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

— Lloyd Burnard (@LloydBurnard) June 10, 2019


15:51

A pitch inspection will take place at 15:15 local time, which is 16:15 SA time


15:45

UPDATE:

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.


15:25

RAIN UPDATE FROM ROSE BOWL: Rain has stopped and work on the water on and around the covers has started again. Probably not wise to get our hopes up though @Sport24news @News24

— Lloyd Burnard (@LloydBurnard) June 10, 2019


15:25

The Proteas have are looking for a win after losing three consecutive games


15:24

South Africa are 29/2 in 7.3 overs before rain stopped play.


14:56

RAIN UPDATE FROM ROSE BOWL: Work on removing the covers has stopped because it has started raining again. It’s one of those days … @Sport24news @News24

— Lloyd Burnard (@LloydBurnard) June 10, 2019


14:06

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.


13:30

RAIN UPDATE: No change in the weather at all. It’s still drizzling heavily and chances of more cricket, like South Africa’s chances at the World Cup, are disappearing more with each passing minute @Sport24news @News24

— Lloyd Burnard (@LloydBurnard) June 10, 2019


13:04

It’s raining on South Africa at 29/2/7.3 with #imAmla 6 (7) and Markram 5 (10) sent back by bouncy Cottrell.

Also, it’s ??raining at the Rose Bowl so play has stopped. If we get a T20 style shootout we couldn’t have picked worse than the West Indies… #SAvWI #CWC2019

— Paul Watson ???????? (@paulmwatson) June 10, 2019


13:03

UPDATE: The covers are still on, with no prospect of a return to action in the next while.


12:23

People questioned me why I left hash out of my squad.. they diving for cover now..cricket doesn’t work that way. You gotta do the hard yards and turn it around yourself.

12:21

Our journalist at the ground, Lloyd Burnard, doesn’t think the players will be back on for a while…


12:16

RAIN DELAY

Oh dear, a light drizzle has now become a bit more heavy… enough for play to be suspended…

Right-arm quickie Oshane Thomas is into the attack in the ninth over.


12:01

Skipper Faf du Plessis is the new batsman in for SA.

A tad unlucky there for Markram, who got a faint edge trying to glance it down the leg side…

Aiden Markram is the new batsman in for SA.
