Durban: The crucial World Cup clash between South Africa and Sri Lanka at Kingsmead was halted by torrential rain on Monday.South Africa had reached 229 for 6 in 45 overs in reply to Sri Lanka's 268 for 9.Under the Duckworth-Lewis method, the scores are level and if there is no further play, South Africa will be knocked-out of the tournament.When the players went off, Mark Boucher was not out 45 with Lance Klusener on one.Regardless of the result, Sri Lanka has already made it through to the Super Sixes along with Kenya who qualified on Saturday.If South Africa fails to win, then New Zealand will join Sri Lanka and Kenya in the next round.Copyright AFP 2001
