Proteas earn first Cricket World Cup point thanks to rain

Imran Tahir then bamboozled the West Indian batting with his leg-spin while grabbing 5-45 as South Africa equalled the then biggest win by runs - 257 - a World Cup record that lasted just six days when Australia annihilated debutants Afghanistan by 275 runs in Perth.

"We are going to field first, obviously it is overcast and there is some rain around", said Holder, whose side beat Pakistan in their opening match before losing to Australia when they were well-placed to win.

Proteas captain Faf du Plessis has pledged his support behind veteran opening batsman Hashim Amla to find form at the World Cup.

De Villiers´ approach was snubbed by South Africa´s cricket chiefs and Du Plessis claimed the row over whether or not he should have been selected could actually bring the squad closer together.

West Indies will next play hosts England on June 14 before South Africa meet Afghanistan a day later. Both the teams collected one point each which meant the Proteas still remain winless.

"Generally when you are chasing, it always favours the team batting second", he said.

One lone elderly tree survived until 1994 and two more were propagated from cuttings, but they succumbed to a termite attack and fungal infections in 2003.

"Even with, around in my mind, when I was looking at 30, 35 overs, I was still feeling like if we get a score of 200, or 200-plus, I do feel there was enough in that wicket with our bowling attack, especially when playing Beuran today as well, an extra seamer".

"The way that we are playing cricket, we are playing fearless cricket, so it doesn't matter who we play", he pointed out.

A struggling South Africa got their first point of the World Cup after their game against the West Indies was abandoned due to persistent rain here on Monday. However, du Plessis insisted it was too soon to start weighing up permutations in the fight for the top four, or to start wishing for certain teams to trip up to make their own requirement more manageable. "A lot of other things had gone on before that, of course", he said.

After New Zealand's strong start in the tournament, a guaranteed point against World No. 2 India would be a step in the right direction for a semifinal place.

"In that situation the blame game can start but I do honesty believe we´ve been very far away from that". We need to focus on our own performance and get that sorted out. "But it's obviously really out of our control".
