That's it from us here. 'Frustrating' seems to be the word of the day as neither team could get a shot at victory. For South Africa, qualification scenarios have just gotten even bleaker. We'll be back tomorrow for more action from the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup!

21:01 (IST)
20:52 (IST)

Latest Update: The match has been called off by the umpires, as the conditions have been deemed to be unplayable. We could only get through 7.2 overs of play, with South Africa on 29/2 before the rain took over. Points will be shared by both sides.

20:46 (IST)

Latest Update: There will be one final inspection at 4:25 PM local time in Southampton (8:55 PM IST) as the umpires try to gauge whether this game can be salvaged.

20:27 (IST)

If only the people up there listened to Shoaib...

20:25 (IST)

This must be frustrating for all involved - there has been ANOTHER spell of showers in Southampton, and the covers are back on. Looking grey (quite literally) for both the teams here.

20:13 (IST)

Cross your fingers. South African fans, specially!

20:08 (IST)

ICYMI: In order to have a minimum 20 overs a side game at the Ageas Bowl, the match should commence by 4:55 PM local time in Southampton. Otherwise, it will be time to draw curtains on this game, and both teams will share points. Which would, really be a pity.

19:32 (IST)

Bad news coming from the middle here. It has started to drizzle again and the covers are coming back on. There will be further delay in the match. 

19:14 (IST)
19:01 (IST)
18:50 (IST)
18:43 (IST)

The good news coming from the centre is that rain has stopped for now and the groundsmen are trying to drain the covers first. 

18:28 (IST)

WEATHER UPDATE: If the players are not back out by 5:00pm, then today will be a complete washout. It's still raining, and we will need it to stop well before that cut-off mark if we are to have any play at all.

18:09 (IST)
17:48 (IST)
17:29 (IST)

The wait is getting frustrating for the players and the fans. We might lose some overs here. But an official word about the situation is yet to come. 

17:04 (IST)
17:02 (IST)

Still no signs of play. It is still raining at Southampton and the covers are still on. It will be a while before the umpires come out for inspection. 

16:30 (IST)

WEATHER UPDATE: Not very good signs at Southampton at the moment as rain has gotten heavier. We will have to wait for a little longer before the play can resume. 

16:17 (IST)

News from the centre is that it is still overcast and drizzling. There might be a little more delay before the match gets underway again.

16:01 (IST)

This break might just help Windies, when the teams get back on the park again. The conditions will be overcast and batting, again, will be difficult in these conditions. 

15:57 (IST)
15:48 (IST)
15:40 (IST)

RAIN INTERUPPTS PLAY: There is a change in the bowling as Oshane Thomas is on. He starts with a wide one that goes for a one. It's been a good start for the Windies. But there is a rain delay now.  It's a slight drizzle but the players are walking off the field. 

15:29 (IST)

OUT: South Africans have clearly targeted their bowler —  Cottrell. They are seeing off Roach's over and going for their shots in the other. In the meantime Cottrell has another wicket here. A short one and Markram fails to control the ball. The ball goes to the keeper. Proteas are 28/2 as Markram goes for 5. 

15:24 (IST)
15:24 (IST)

FOUR: Cottrell is surprising de Kock with his short ones, coming in at an awkward angle. This is good bowling by the Windies team, and it only goes to show that they have a good variety in their attack. And de Kock ends the over with an expansive drive that results in a four. Proteas are 25/1 after 5 overs. 

15:20 (IST)

FOUR: Kemar Roach comes on for his second over. And Markram sees it off safely. The key on this wicket is saving wickets. Markram finally leans into a drive and gets a four. Proteas are now 17/1 after 4 overs.

West Indies will be looking to register their second win while South Africa will look to register their first points in the Points table. Currently West Indies are at seventh position while South Africa are ninth in the Points Table.

After three consecutive defeats, South Africa will eye their first win of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 when they face West Indies at the Hampshire Bowl, here on Monday. After a below par show so far, the Proteas desperately need a win to stay in contention for a spot in the semi-finals. West Indies on the other hand looked slightly better after a win and a loss from their two games. The Jason Holder-led Carribean side kicked-off their campaign on a convincing note with an impressive seven wicket win over Pakistan before suffering a narrow 15 loss to Australia. The Proteas lost their all three encounters against England, Bangladesh and India. The pacer’s performance in their six wicket loss to India must be heartening for skipper Faf du Plessis and the team management, but it’s the batsmen who need to step-up against a good looking West Indies pace attack.

So far, nothing seems to work well for South Africa as pacer Dale Steyn has been ruled out due to injury while Lungi Ngidi is also unfit for the game on Monday. South Africa have plenty to discuss about their inconsistent performance with the bat and their openers – Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla will have to surely fire against the Windies. However, their middle order looks decent and the lower order has also chipped in with runs. The Proteas now needs to play fearless and attacking cricket. Meanwhile, the Windies will look to rise up from their narrow defeat to Australia, a game which was under their control. While their aggressive opening bowling in the first two matches have impressed everyone and if it happens again, it could be another threat for the Proteans as their openers have failed to fire. It was a poor shot selection by the Carribean batsmen in their run-chase against Australia, which cost them the match. However, having won their opening fixture and pushing closer to victory against Australia, they will be the favourites in Monday’s game. South Africa, however, have a 4-2 advantage over West Indies in World Cup games.
