Cardiff: West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo regretted the fact his side were denied one more ball to win the match after they bowed out of the Champions Trophy following a tie with South Africa.

After rain reduced Friday's fixture in Cardiff to 31 overs per side, South Africa, sent into bat by Bravo, made 230 for six on the back of man-of-the-match Colin Ingram's 73, as well as handy contributions from David Miller (38) and Proteas captain AB de Villiers (37).

West Indies were in trouble at 87 for three but Marlon Samuels (48) and Kieron Pollard (28) both scored at better than a run-a-ball to get the World Twenty20 champions back on track.
