Heavy rain disrupted the pivotal T20 World Cup encounter between South Africa and the West Indies, stopping proceedings after the Proteas lost both openers, Reeza Hendricks and Quinton de Kock, for just 15 runs in pursuit of 136.

Andre Russell (2/3) spearheaded the West Indies bowling attack, becoming their highest wicket-taker across all tournament editions with 29 scalps, surpassing Dwayne Bravo's record.

Only two overs were bowled before the rain interruption. Should no further play be possible, South Africa will advance to the semi-finals based on their current standing of five points from three games, while the West Indies face elimination.

Previously, West Indies struggled against South African spinners, with Roston Chase's half-century standing out amidst a crumbling batting order. Tabraiz Shamsi was the star, claiming 3/27 in four overs, while Keshav Maharaj and Aiden Markram chipped in with key wickets.
