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

South Africa vs West Indies, LIVE Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Preview: Searching for their maiden win in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup, Faf du Plessis' South Africa will face West Indies at The Rose Bowl, Southampton on Monday.

The "no result" has given them a first point of the competition from four matches, but they likely needed double that in order to compete for the knockout phase.

The AB de Villiers saga has not had a big impact on the Proteas team but it could give them the extra push they need to perform the near-impossible task of reaching the World Cup semi-finals, according to the captain, Faf du Plessis.

Earlier, Windies skipper Jason Holder won the toss and elected to field against the Proteas.

The washout saw each team taking a point, leaving West Indies fifth in the standings on three points after three matches.

Amla has endured a stop-start World Cup after being hit on the head by England paceman Jofra Archer in the opening game at The Oval. "So, as it got a bit later in the day, then you would rather get the point and go", du Plessis said after the match was abandoned. "But hopefully it can give the team some more direction and objective", Du Plessis said in Southampton. "There is more pace and bounce in the wicket, and the nature of it is that you lose wickets", Du Plessis said. [Shortage] favours the team that bats second. We do feel like the news came in and like, went through the team.

We're not sure if it'll be at San Diego Comic-Con or The D23 Expo, but there should be something new before the end of the summer. The Skywalker Saga is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch next year.

"The way that we are playing cricket, we are playing fearless cricket, so it doesn't matter who we play", he pointed out.

"We have to do the basics better, the batters have to take more responsibility".

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. "If we do that, and the results start happening one by one, then this team will get a lot of confidence from that for the later stages".

"Generally, I find that when a team starts losing two or three games, it can happen that there are a few cracks that can appear in a team and the blame game can start". We need individuals to stand up.

"Every game for us is a must-win and the permutations are really too far away".
