The covers were first taken off being brought back on again. It seems now that the match has been reduced to 47-overs-a-side and the innings break will be for 10 mins.
The covers are coming off and it looks like play could resume soon.
Rain stopped play for a second time soon after Misbah raised his 42nd ODI fifty. Pakistan were 197/5 in 40.1 overs as the players headed for shelter in the face of some heavy showers.
Rain has stopped play in Auckland. There was a rain threat this afternoon and it has finally forced the players off the field. Pakistan are 175/5 in 37 overs
Abbott picks up his second wicket to remove the dangerous Umar Akmal for 13 as Pakistan slip to 175/5 vs South Africa.
Abbott has struck again – this time he removes Maqsood as Pakistan slip to 156/4 in 32 overs. South Africa are fighting back only the way they know.
Pakistan are slugging it out. Despite the loss of key wickets, this is the best platform they have had in this World Cup and their batsmen need to capitalise on it. Misbah had spoken of the need to get to at least 250 to allow his bowlers some leeway.
