Nottinghamshire weather update-will rain play spoilsport in this key WC encounter

ICC World Cup: Rain halts play after Cottrell's double blow

He just needs to get through to about 30 overs and I'm sure he'll convert. And so, in the final analysis, du Plessis was content to take his side's battle for World Cup survival into Saturday's clash with Afghanistan in Cardiff - the first of what he now knows will be five must-win contests. West Indies lie fifth in the standings among the ten teams with one win, one loss and one no result.

South Africa, who lost their first three games, were 29-2 from 7.3 overs before the rain came.

Given the format of the tournament, in which each team plays the other nine once, batting coach Dale Benkenstein believes the ability to strategise more spontaneously could be the key to success. "I guess we were hoping we would get a full day today, but nothing we can do about this so we have to move on and play well in the future matches", said all-rounder captain Jason Holder.

"It's unfortunate in that you can't do anything about the weather situation". Du Plessis insisted that the furor surrounding de Villiers' proposed return from worldwide retirement has not been a factor in the team's disjointed display in the World Cup so far and instead he believes it could be the sort of issue that draws the squad closer together. We need individuals to stand up.

South Africa may leave Rassie Van der Dussen who has groin injury as if he does not put on Aiden Markram most expected will easily reach the eleven. So it's those moments of mental weakness when they just get out. "We need to start playing better Cricket, more consistent, more solid Cricket".

In the end, both South Africa and West Indies shared a point each in their latest ICC Cricket World Cup match, leaving the former in a hard position.

The Caribbean side have used their fast bowling attack to good effect in the tournament, blasting out Pakistan in their opening game in Nottingham before also having Australia on the run in their second game last Thursday at the same venue before tasting defeat.

Speaking to reporters at the press conference after the rain washed out the tie against West Indies, the 34-year-old said: "It was just a conversation, a phone call the night before the team got announced". From a coaching perspective, we just want to remind them that they're good players, and help them remember what it felt like when they were playing well.

West Indies' Andre Russell should be fit to face England on Friday. "I guess it is a blessing this game is over and we can look forward to the game against England".
