Proteas Creep🏏 Closer to CWC Exit🚫 After Windies Washout

  |   Sanews

South Africa need other results to go their way if they are to make the semi-finals of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Monday's 'no-result' against the West Indies in Southampton means that the most the Proteas can finish on is 11 log points.

While there are many avenues left that could still result in the Proteas progressing to the playoffs, there are at least four teams who can finish on at least 12 points and that would see the South Africans eliminated.

On a day where victory was vital to the South African cause, the players looked on as the rain fell on the Rose Bowl turf for most of the day.

When play was first stopped, South Africa had battled their way to 29/2 from 7.3 overs having lost the toss.

Under gloomy skies, Hashim Amla (6 off 7) and Aiden Markram (5 off 10) lost their wickets to left-arm Windies quick Sheldon Cottrell.

Quinton de Kock (17 off 21) and skipper Faf du Plessis (0 off 7) were at the crease with their side well and truly on the back foot.
