Weather wreaks havoc as Lions and Dolphins draw
A wet outfield meant that that no play was possible on a gloomy final day of the Sunfoil Series clash between the Hollywoodbets Dolphins and bizhub Highveld Lions at the City Oval in Pietermaritzburg on Monday.
The inclement weather was around well before the start of day four leaving umpires Siphelele Gasa and Bongani Jele little choice in their decision.
Either rain or bad light had hampered the game throughout the previous three days with a mere 178.1 overs bowled through the match.
The weather forced the visitors to declare on 277 for seven with Wiaan Mulder (70) and Rassie van der Dussen (75) top scoring before the Dolphins reached 185 for six in their reply by the end of day three.
Aaron Phangiso was the chief wicket taker with figures of 3/59
Round four of matches begins next Monday. With the Lions taking on the Knights in Potchefstroom.
