Rain Postpones Cup

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan () -- The rain-hit World Cup match between South Africa and the United Arab Emirates has been postponed until Friday, officials said.

The decision came after frantic efforts by workers, using blankets, straw brushes, mops and sponges, failed to dry the pitch and outfield at the Pindi stadium on Thursday morning.

The pitch and outfield were soaked by heavy rain over the past two days.
