The first Twenty20 clash between South Africa and Pakistan is abandoned due to heavy rain.

The first Twenty20 international between South Africa and Pakistan has been abandoned due to rain.

The hosts, who clinched the Test series over Pakistan with ease, were due to get their T20 international underway in Durban this evening but the scheduled start looked doubtful due to torrential rain.

Organisers were considering a five-over game but it emerged that due to the downpour, it would take ground staff around two hours to clear it.

Following an hour-and-a-half of deliberation, the match was called off without a ball bowled.
