Second ODI Abandoned Due to Rain


The 2nd ODI between England and South Africa has been abandoned due to heavy rain throughout the day.


With the forecast looking dire and Durban being battered by rain all morning, the start was delayed with only minimal play possible throughout the day.


In the 11.2 overs we did manage, South Africa reached 71-2 with Joe Root removing the centurion from the 1st ODI for just 11, and Chris Jordan trapping Bavuma LBW.


Despite talk of it being reduced to a 20 over game, there wasn't a great deal of expectation on their being a result today.


The teams will move to Johannesburg for the 3rd and final ODI of the series on Sunday, with play set to start at 8:00am GMT.


South Africa can't lose the series now, entering the 3rd game 1-0 up after their convincing win earlier this week, with England hoping to draw the series before the T20 leg of the tour starts.
