First T20I washed out

Non-stop rain forces first T20I between South Africa and Australia to be abandoned without a ball being bowled

First T20I washed out  - Cricket News
The first T20I between Australia and South Africa was washed out due to incessant rain.
The first of three Twenty20 Internationals between South Africa and Australia was abandoned without a ball bowled due to rain on Sunday (March 9) at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.
Incessant rain fell for most of the day, and although the covers were removed at one stage and the pitch was rolled, a fresh shower ended any chance of play, while match officials and team members from both sides looked on. The series is an opportunity for the teams to prepare for the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh that is due to start later this month.
The second match will be played in Durban on Wednesday, with the last game on Friday at the Centurion.
