South Africa remained winless in World Cup 2019 after their match against the West Indies was abandoned due to rain at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Monday. Both teams got a point each after just 7.3 overs were possible as rain gods played hide-and-seek throughout the league encounter. West Indies paceman Sheldon Cottrell had reduced South Africa to 29 for two before rain stopped play in their World Cup match. South Africa, desperately needing a win after defeats in all three of their matches so far at the tournament in England and Wales, lost the toss and were put in to bat under threatening skies. They were quickly in trouble, with Hashim Amla edging Cottrell to Chris Gayle at slip for just six, sparking the bowler's trademark celebration featuring a short march and salute. That brought Aiden Markram to the wicket but he had only made five when he tickled a Cottrell delivery down the legside and wicketkeeper Shai Hope completed the catch to leave South Africa in deep trouble at 28-2 in the seventh over. In the following over, delivered by Oshane Thomas, rain stopped play and the covers came on. (SCORECARD)

    Cottrell picks second... Markram departs

    It was a nothing delivery from Sheldon Cottrell, it was going down and would have been called wide had the batsman left it but instead he wanted to work it fine and ended up gloving it to keeper. Shai Hope completed a good catch to his left. With that comes the trademark "Salute" celebration of Cottrell.

  • 15:26 (IST)Jun 10, 2019


    Cottrell offers width to Quinton de Kock and he pounced on that as he struck it firmly off the backfoot for a four through point.
  • 15:24 (IST)Jun 10, 2019

    Excellent fielding

    Quinton de Kock plays an elegant shot through backward point. Kemar Roach dived full length at the fence and managed to keep it inside, saving two crucial runs for his side.
  • 15:22 (IST)Jun 10, 2019


    Aiden Markram gets off the mark with a boundary. He played full ball from Kemar Roach on his front foot through cover for a four. It was result of a pure timing.
  • 15:15 (IST)Jun 10, 2019

    Cottrell strikes!

    Extra bounce from Sheldon Cottrell does the trick for him as Hashim Amla once again wanted to slash it over point but didn't cover the bounce and paid heavy price for it as the ball went straight to Chris Gayle at the first slip. 
  • 15:13 (IST)Jun 10, 2019

    First boundary of the day!

    Cottrell bowls a juicy half-volley to Hashim Amla. He leans forward and plays it elegantly in the gap on the off side for a four.
  • 15:10 (IST)Jun 10, 2019

    Cautious start

    Sourth Africa openers start cautiously against West Indies pacers.
  • 15:09 (IST)Jun 10, 2019

    DRS overturn decision... De Kock survives

    Kemar Roach, who was brought in place of Andre Russell in today's game, convinced umpire to rule in his favour. Quinton de Kock reviewed it straight away and the replay suggests it came off his thigh pad forcing the umpire to reverse his decision. 
  • 15:01 (IST)Jun 10, 2019

    Players are out in the middle!
