  • A decision was made to abandon the match in Durban due to heavy rainfall

Heavy rain caused the abandonment of England’s second one-day international against South Africa.

It is more frustration for England and means they cannot win the series after losing first ODI

Matches in Durban have proven to be a bad omen for England as both of their previous two ODIs against South Africa there -one in 2005 and one in 2009 – were also called off due to rain.

The ODI had already faced two lengthy stoppages due to rain before the decision was made the abandon the second installment of the series. 

Both sides are set to meet in the third ODI in Johannesburg on Sunday. 

The predicted forecast looks unconvincing there as well but there will be hope that both England and South Africa can get some uninterrupted play.
