The VKB Knights and bizhub Highveld Lions both suffered a blow in their bid to reach the RAM Slam T20 Challenge play-offs after their match at the Mangaung Oval had to be abandoned due to rain in Bloemfontein on Friday.
The bizhub Highveld Lions were looking for victory from the game, but unfortunately did not receive it after only 13 overs were possible due to delays for first thunder and then rain, which eventually arrived and was there to stay.
The bizhub Highveld Lions had won the toss and opted to bowl first, a decision that looked a good one after the bowlers kept the home batsmen mainly in check.
Keegan Petersen did manage to record an unbeaten half-century, striking five fours and a six in what was his maiden 50-plus score at franchise level.
However, the rain did not allow him to kick on as the match was declared a no result leaving the two sides to share the spoils.
Both teams now move on to 12 points apiece, with the bizhub Highveld Lions in action on Wednesday when they play the Hollywoodbets Dolphins at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead, Durban.
