The final Pool A fixture of the One-Day Cup between the Knights and the Dolphins has been abandoned without a ball being bowled due to a wet outfield at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on Saturday.  

Following overnight rain and a morning shower, umpires Abdoellah Steenkamp and Arno Jacobs ruled that there was no prospect of play an hour before the match was due to start.

The result means that only two One Day Cup matches have taken place, while the remaining four Pool A games have been abandoned without a ball being bowled in Potchefstroom.

The Dolphins (13 points) finish top of the pool and the Knights (6 points) second, with both teams advancing to the semi-finals.

Sitting bottom of the log, the Titans (5 points) have missed out on a place after two of their games were called off.

Pool B fixtures scheduled to take place from 22-30 January at the same venue in a bio-secure environment (BSE).

The Lions, Cape Cobras and Warriors arrive in Potch on 18 January.
