Rain damages South Africa's semi-final hopes

Roddy Estwick is confident the West Indies can defeat South Africa

While both Du Plessis and De Villiers were at the IPL at the time, the skipper says it was not a face-to-face conversation.

But he then made polished half-centuries against both Sri Lanka and the West Indies in the warm-up matches. "One thing is for sure, it's good for worldwide cricket to have the West Indies playing the brand of cricket they are". But we can't control the weather.

He rested due to concussion symptoms for the game against Bangladesh, but then could only make a pair of 6s against India and the West Indies in Southampton. However, the available evidence suggested that South Africa actually dodged a bullet - especially after their designated mainstay, Hashim Amla, had been blasted from the crease in Sheldon Cottrell's second over, to take his tournament tally to 25 runs in three visits. It didn't have a big impact. It's a great sign for our team and I'm happy with this man of the match award. Addressing the same, du Plessis said: "We do feel like the news came in and went through the team". But there was more pace and bounce in Southampton and that pitch is more tricky than numerous others in England.

Shortly after Markram's dismissal, the rain came and play was suspended for a lengthy period of time.

"The batters are not thinking about AB ... they've got enough to think about", he said.

"You don't become a bad player in a week".

"It was a good opportunity to play against them, like any other team in the competition", Reifer said. We'll just keep playing our fearless cricket. "I guess we were hoping we would get a full day today, but nothing we can do about this so we have to move on and play well in the future matches", said all-rounder captain Jason Holder. The two-time World Cup winners have a 1-1 record in the tournament - a comprehensive win by seven wickets over Pakistan and a close 15-run defeat to Australia.

Hegerberg-less Norway canter past Nigeria
While the Super Falcons now face a battle to stay in the tournament, Norway head to Nice to face hosts France in buoyant mood. We have been working really closely to coordinate the team and make the right decisions also for the interest of the team.

"In that situation the blame game can start but I do honesty believe we've been very far away from that".

'The guys have been nervous and it's shown, ' he said. South Africa's preparation has to be spot on.

The top four teams from the group will progress to the knockout stage.

"It is too far away", he told media from the Rose Bowl on Monday.

"We need individuals to stand up and step up morale".

The South Africans will play No. 10-ranked Afghanistan on Saturday in Cardiff and need to start a five-game winning roll there.
