Heavy rain forces wash out

Ground:New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg
Scorecard:South Africa v England
Event:England in South Africa 2009/10

DateLine: 20th November 2009


The opening one-day international between England and South Africa at the Wanderers was abandoned without a ball bowled after the heavy rain continued. The umpires made two inspections and called the game off when it became clear the weather wasn't going to allow a contest.


Both teams stayed in their hotels which gave a clear indication as to the prospects. England were forced to train indoors yesterday including making use of a covered car park for fielding practice.


Paul Collingwood will have to wait until Sunday to become England's most capped ODI player. He remains level with Alec Stewart on 170 appearances.
