Scotland captain Ryan Watson won the toss and elected to field against India in the ICC [Images] Twenty20 World Cup Group D match in Durban on Thursday.

The start of the match, however, was delayed due to rain.

Showers forced both teams to abandon their warm-ups and head indoors just an hour before the scheduled start.

The covers were brought out but after a brief spell the rain stopped. The two skippers came out for the toss before rains came again.
