Durban: The first Twenty20 match between Pakistan and South Africa has been cancelled due to continuous rain at Kingsmead Cricket Stadium, Durban, South Africa.
Earlier, the umpires agreed to delay the match for 40 minutes if the ground staff prepares the ground for the match but disappointingly the rain continued to fall down, thus forcing the umpires to call-off the match.
It is to be mentioned here that the Proteas defeated Pakistan in the three-match test series by 3-0. The final T20 between the two teams will be played at Super Sports Park Centurion on March 3.
