Rain washes out England-South Africa decider

South Africa 159 for 2 (de Kock 92*) vs England

Leeds: The third one-day international between England and South Africa at Headingley was washed out, meaning the series is drawn 1-1.

Just 27.4 overs were possible in Leeds, with two lengthy rain delays enough to force the abandonment at 16:05 BST.

The first delay - which lasted an hour and 50 minutes - came after 20.5 overs, with South Africa batting after winning the toss.

Play resumed for just 6.5 overs before more rain at 14:35 ultimately led to an early abandonment of the series decider.

South Africa were 159-2 when the second lot of rain came, with opener Quinton de Kock unbeaten on 92 from 76 balls.

The opener had ridden his luck initially, twice edging through the vacant slip cordon, but played some beautiful cover drives and reverse sweeps as he moved towards what looked certain to be an 18th ODI century.

Aiden Markram was 24 not out at the other end, after Janneman Malan fell for 11 and Rassie van der Dussen 26.

Malan miscued Willey to Jason Roy at backward point, before Van der Dussen was caught on the square-leg boundary off Adil Rashid.

England's next ODI series will be against Australia, after the T20 World Cup, in November.
