England-South Africa One-Day Cricket Match Washed Out by Rain
The opening one-day cricket match between England and South Africa was washed out by rain after just 5.3 overs were played in Cardiff.
Play began at 3:10 p.m. following a 5-hour rain delay with South Africa bowling after winning the toss and the teams reduced to 23 overs per side instead of the normal 50.
The second game in the five-match series will be played Aug. 28 in Southampton. South Africa earlier won the Test series 2-0 to replace England atop the International Cricket Council rankings.
