Bridgetown (Barbados): Australia and South Africa took two points each after the seventh match of the limited-overs international tri-series was washed out on Sunday after just nine minutes of play.

South Africa, sent into bat under overcast skies, was 8-0 off one over when heavy rain arrived and forced a lengthy delay.
Even when rain abated, a damp spot running the length of the pitch caused concern for the umpires, who eventually announced the match was abandoned at 6:30 pm.
South Africa remains atop the standings with 12 points.
