Once again, South Africa faced their old nemesis... rain.

South Africa, who have been haunted by rain and the D/L method faced a similar situation in their semi-final match against South Africa, just when they were about to pick up the run rate.

Going strong at 216-3 in 38 overs, rain played spoilsport.

Skipper AB de Villiers did provide the momentum, but it was David Miller who turned the game innings on its head with a 19-ball 49 (scorecard).
