AB saga will motivate Proteas, says Faf

World Cup 2019 Match 15 SA vs WI Live Score South Africa vs West Indies Live Cricket Score

South Africa were 29 for two in the eighth over when rain stopped play and intermittent showers meant no play was possible for the rest of the game, giving them their first point after three back-to-back losses against England, Bangladesh and India.

Faf Du Plessis hopes the controversy over AB De Villiers´ attempt to come out of retirement for the World Cup can fuel his side´s bid to rescue their spluttering campaign.

Earlier, Windies skipper Jason Holder won the toss and elected to field against the Proteas.

SA can now only reach a maximum of 11 points should they win their remaining five matches, starting with Afghanistan in Cardiff on Saturday. "I said to him "I think it is too late but I will check in with the coach and the selectors the next morning to get their opinion on it as the squad was already announced or picked", du Plessis said.

According to the rules of the one-day game, each team must face a minimum of 120 deliveries of the allocated 300 for the game to be counted. He had bowled just four overs before walking off the field. "We batted seven overs, they are not expecting a shortened game, so the pace that you go at, and losing two wickets, [changes things]".

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

Messi scores twice in Nicaragua rout
Messi grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and sparked his side into action by netting the opener in the 37th minute. The Barcelona forward struck twice in the first half before Lautaro Martinez and Roberto Pereyra added gloss to the score.

"So far we've been getting new ball wickets".

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

Defeat to the West Indies would have left South Africa with nearly no chance of qualifying for the semi-finals. 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. "If we do that, and the results start happening one by one, then this team will get a lot of confidence from that for the later stages".

"It is too far away", du Plessis 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. It is just performance-wise, we haven't put in the performances we need. "But it's obviously really out of our control".
