Rain has left the Memorial Stadium unplayable

After heavy overnight rain, referee Iain Williamson deemed the Memorial Stadium surface unplayable.

A statement on the Pirates' official website read: "Referee Iain Williamson inspected the pitch this morning, and decided that the match should not go ahead.

"There were puddles of standing water on the surface, and with bad weather expected to continue all day, the match official took the decision to call the game off early."

A new date for the clash has yet to be arranged.
