South Africa vs Pakistan, 1st T20, Pakistan tour of South Africa 2013
That is all from us here. Join us for more T20I action in the coming days. West Indies and Zimbabwe square off in a two match series starting tomorrow. Until then, Bye Bye!
18:33 Local Time, 16:33 GMT: It was only a matter of time. The match has been abandoned without a ball been bowled. What a shame.
17:36 Local Time, 15:36 GMT: There are puddles of water forming on the outfield. Umpire Shaun George says that the overs will start reducing from 18:30 PM local. The official cut off time is 20:40 PM local. However, the rain has settled down here. The ground-staff need at least two hours after the rain has stopped to make the ground playable.
17:31 Local Time, 15:31 GMT: It is still raining heavily in Durban. The cut-off time is 8:30 PM local for a five over game. In case the rain does not stop in a couple of hours, play could be called off.
17:18 Local Time, 15:18 GMT: Live visuals from the ground show that the rain is still pelting down at Durban. The covers are firmly in place.
Hello and welcome to the match between South Africa and Pakistan from Durban. It is a new beginning for both teams. However, the news from Durban is not that great. It is bucketing down at the moment and chances of play happening look bleak. Stay tuned for further updates.
