Cricket continues despite rain

South Africa has won the toss and elected to field in the rain-affected fifth one-day cricket international against West Indies.

West Indies are playing an unchanged side, but South Africa have made one change to their line-up with Justin Ontong replacing Makhaya Ntini.

The match will start almost five hours late, and has been reduced to 20 overs-a-side. Each bowler will be limited to a maximum of four overs, and the fielding restriction will apply for the first six overs of each innings.

Play was scheduled to start at just before midnight (AEST) but persistent overnight and early morning showers delayed the start. It has left several parts of the ground sodden.
