No result in Bristol.

Only 76 deliveries bowled with rain playing spoilsport. South Africa, put into bat by the West Indies, made 95/0 (12.4 overs) after the match was reduced to 31-overs a side affair. Hashim Amla, back from the wilderness, made a brilliant unbeaten 51 off 46 balls, while Quinton de Kock made 37 off 30 balls.

Both the warm-up matches today were called-off.
