Dolphins beat rain and Knights

2014-02-01 00:00

DURBAN — Knights fell short by 41 runs in their reply to the Dolphins’ 170-4 in a rain delayed Ram Slam T20 match at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in Durban last night.

Earlier, heavy rain swept over the ground to force a halt in play after the match had begun under a heavily overcast sky.

Cameron Delport had earlier smashed his way to a fifty to propel Dolphins to their final total. Opening batsman Delport raced to 56 off 36 balls with three fours and three sixes before being dismissed in the 14th over when he was caught at midwicket off the bowling of Quinton Friend.

The Dolphins made a rollicking start to their innings, after being asked to bat on a slowish wicket.

The in-form David Miller looked to take the game away from the Knights with an aggressive 39 off 27 balls, before falling to a superb, tumbling catch from Rilee Rossouw off Ryan McLaren. The loss of Miller saw the Dolphins finish in a stuttering fashion, scoring just 21 runs off the last three overs.
