South Africa had slipped to 29 for two in the eighth over when rain stopped play in Southampton, and the match never resumed.

Buttler, who scored 103 in England's defeat by Pakistan in their second game, is the second highest run-scorer in the tournament with 185 at an average of 61.66.

The West Indies will doubtless have proved far more frustrated to be halted by the weather, especially in light of their aggressive start having won the toss.

Meanwhile, South Africa coach Ottis Gibson admitted on Saturday he was frustrated to have to deal with the row over AB de Villiers' controversial late offer to play in the World Cup.

"It was just a conversation, a phone call the night before the team got announced", the official website of the Cricket World Cup quoted du Plessis as saying.

According to the rules of the one-day game, each team must face a minimum of 120 deliveries of the allocated 300 for the game to be counted.

De Villiers´ approach was snubbed by South Africa´s cricket chiefs and Du Plessis claimed the row over whether or not he should have been selected could actually bring the squad closer together. "We batted seven overs, they are not expecting a shortened game, so the pace that you go at, and losing two wickets, [changes things]".

"I feel like we allowed the news to come into the camp and then go through quickly, there wasn't any huge impact". "We are playing fearless cricket, so it doesn't matter who we play". "We kind of made some mistakes at key points in the game and it happens in cricket, but you learn from it".

Speaking after Monday's washout game against West Indies, South African captain Faf du Plessis disclosed that he and retired cricketer AB de Villiers had telephonic conversation on this during the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this summer.

The top four teams from the group will progress to the knockout stage.

The abandoned match gifted the Proteas their first point of the tournament, following an unprecedented three straight losses.

"And I do honestly believe that we have been very far away from that". We need individuals to stand up. "If you get that going, then other players can feed off their confidence". "But it's obviously really out of our control".
