Heavy overnight and early morning rain delayed the scheduled 10:30 am local time (0930 GMT) start of Tuesday’s match.

And with rain continuing to fall, the umpires — after several inspections — bowed to the inevitable by calling the game off at 1:57 pm (1257 GMT).

Both sides received a point for the washout.

It was the second World Cup no-result in as many days after rain cut short South Africa’s match against the West Indies in Southampton on Monday.
