The seventh ODI of the tri-nation series in West Indies was called off after rain did not allow perfect conditions for play. Only one over was possible in which South Africa were 8/0.

Australia vs South Africa:

# There it is. The match has been suspended after the pitch is deemed unfit for play

# This is bad. The rain is slowly coming back. Grey skies. Umpires don’t look optimistic

# We will surely lose overs now

# Umpires have done the inspection and said that they will have another one in around 25 minutes because the pitch is still wet. The outfield is fine

# They will do an inspection of the pitch shortly

# The ground staff is trying to get it ready for the game. The pitch got wet while being covered

# Good news! The covers, which were on for the last 3 and a half hours are now coming of in Keningston Oval

# Just popping in to tell you that it is still raining in Barbados.

# POURING IS THE WORD!

# An over in, 8/0 and it is absolutely pouring! Covers on immediately.

# Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock in the middle. Mitchell Starc has the ball.

# TEAMS:

# TOSS: Australia win the toss and opt to field first

# For the milestone: AB de Villiers is playing his 200th ODI for South Africa.

# The weather doesn’t look promising with clouds in the air. There were showers in the morning.
