South Africa, Zimbabwe share points as rain plays spoilsport

South Africa and Zimbabwe had to settle for a point each as their Super 12 encounter at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart didn’t yield any result, with rain causing frequent interruptions and delays.

At first, the match was reduced to nine overs per side due to frequent interruptions caused by rain. Even though it kept drizzling lightly, the match went on fine until the first over of the South African innings.  Zimbabwe scored 79/4 in their nine overs and the Proteas were set a DLS target of 85 to chase down in their quota of nine overs initially, but that was reduced to 64 from seven overs after the interruption. South Africa kept cruising towards the target but the match couldn’t resume again when rain caused another interruption after the third over.
