Washout could leave South Africa’s hopes down the drain

The 39-year-old caught South African opener Hashim Amla (six) at slip off a Sheldon Cottrell delivery in the third over to claim his 122nd catch in his 292nd ODI he played for the Caribbean side.

What: South Africa vs West Indies When: June 10, 2019 Where: The Rose Bowl, Southampton Time: 3:00 pm (IST) The Proteas lost their all three encounters against England, Bangladesh and India.

Quinton de Kock, who successfully reviewed a freakish caught-behind decision earlier in his innings, and Du Plessis were in the midst of rebuilding when the rain brought a halt - and ultimately an end - to the contest. West Indies now have three points from three games.

The news that the champion batsman had made himself available for the World Cup squad on the eve of the squad announcement arrived with such bad timing - on the morning after South Africa's defeat to India - that one could forgive Du Plessis for being extremely angry with his childhood friend for creating another media storm around an already embattled team and another distraction for the players.

"Lungi will be ready for the next match. will be good to have him back".

He admitted that "Australia loss hurt but [there is] no point dwelling on it". Yes, he's bowling quickly, but there's nothing we're not accustomed to.

There has been plenty of speculation that De Villiers' proposed global comeback, only to be vetoed by Cricket South Africa, put plenty of strain on Du Plessis.

The two teams share a point each though one feels neither captain will be entirely satisfied with that. "We're not focusing on the negatives", he was quoted as saying by ESPN Cricinfo.

South Africa went into the match on Monday desperately needing a positive result. However, having won their opening fixture and pushing closer to victory against Australia, they will be the favourites in Monday's game.

South Africa made two changes, bringing in Aiden Markram and Beuran Hendricks in the playing XI.

Chris Gayle and allrounder Andre Russell were cleared fit to play for the West Indies.
