Desperate South Africa in trouble at rain delay in must-win clash

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

It is believed that K.L. Rahul will be asked to open the innings with Rohit Sharma in the match against New Zealand while a replacement will be sought after the team management decides on who they feel is most suited to fit into the playing XI. Quinton de Kock and captain Faf du Plessis were batting on 17 and 0 when rain lashed the ground. "There was just a discussion on clarity and on making sure everyone knows what's going on and then it was moving on", he said.

"But stuff like that can give you direction and objective, to focus on what lies ahead".

According to the management, de Villiers' offer came far too late as the final squad had already been picked and that his inclusion would have been against the rules and principles for he did not play global or domestic cricket since May 2018 when he took the call. "When I spoke to the coach and the selectors the next day, they all agreed that it was way, way too late to change the team", explained Du Plessis.

India then beat South Africa by six wickets, and captain Faf Du Plessis' side have also been ravaged by injury, with Dale Steyn out of the whole tournament and Lungi Ngidi nursing a hamstring strain. Economically we are struggling a little bit, so we want people to wake up in the morning at 5 o'clock and 6 o'clock with a smile on their face, seeing West Indians playing good cricket, ' he continued. "Right now, for us, we need to focus on our performance".

Jupiter, its largest moons, will be visible with binoculars Monday night
Jupiter , the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System- is at its biggest and brightest this month. However, NASA says, the entire month is an equally good time to check out the planet and its four largest moons.

"We don't deserve to be anywhere close to the top of the log". If we can get our performance sorted out, our skills, our confidence back up where it needs to be, and start getting on a roll of two or three games, you can only really look at those things when it comes to the last week of the tournament. However, the South Africa cricket board refused to take the bait.

The Proteas' next match will be against Afghanistan in Cardiff on Saturday, while the men from the Caribbean will take on England in Southampton on Friday.

Choosing to field first under dark clouds, with the floodlights switched on from the first over of this day game, West Indies struck early blows through the left-arm pace of Sheldon Cottrell.

"It's unfortunate in that you can't do anything about the weather situation". We're a game away, a hundred away, a win away from getting that confidence. "I feel like they've batted well, but they haven't batted long enough", he said. "We are in a bad position but it's our own fault", he said. He now looks in awesome form in the nets, he's a class player and this is as well as I've seen him play.
