THE Standard Bank Proteas and the West Indies had to settle for a point apiece in their rain-ruined ICC Men’s World Cup One-Day International at Southampton on Monday.

Only 7.3 overs were possible as the Proteas, having been sent into bat, reached 29 for the loss of Hashim Amla and Aiden Markram, both dismissed by the left-arm pace of Sheldon Cottrell.

The Proteas play their fifth match against Afghanistan at Cardiff on Saturday.
