The Proteas Women had to endure the frustration of a soggy outfield resulting in the third T20I against the West Indies Women being called off, dashing their chances of a series win.
A tropical rainstorm earlier in the day ensured that play would not be possible in a match that South Africa needed to win to keep their hopes of winning the series live. The Windies are in the driving seat after winning the first two matches by 17 runs and nine wickets to take them 2-0 up in the five-match contest.
Every encounter is a must-win for South Africa if they hope to level the series with just two fixtures remaining of their West Indies tour. The sides will meet for the fourth match on Wednesday.
