South Africa’s encounter versus West Indies washed out in Southampton.
Sheldon Cottrell flashed through with two quick scalps to conquer South Africa for just 29 runs losing two wickets in just 7.3 overs before the game was called off due to rain on Monday, 10 June. The left-arm seamer that finished with figures of 2/18 got the better of Aiden Markram, who had come in the XI in place of JP Duminy. The short ball worked once more, as the right-hander dismissed for a 10-ball 5. The action began with Faf du Plessis and his group at a desperate need of getting their first points on the board they had three consecutive losses before coming into this game. They shared points with West Indies courtesy the showers, but now have just one out of a potential eight points at ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.
South Africa’s next mission will come against Afghanistan that is the only team without any points on their name, on Cardiff on Sunday, 16 June. West Indies, meanwhile, will lock horns with hosts England at Southampton two days before that.
