England clinch rain-hit series

-

ENGLAND claimed a series victory after the fifth oneday cricket internatio­nal against South Africa was called off due to persistent rain at Kingsmead.

The match was abandoned without a ball being bowled and the outcome means England secured the series 2-1 after the first match was also washed out, and become only the second country to win a bilateral one-day series in South Africa.

Australia achieved series wins in 96/97 and 2001/02.
