Cape Town - The Titans and Knights were put out of their misery early on the final day of their 4-Day Franchise Series clash after the match was abandoned due to a wet outfield at Willowmoore Park in Benoni on Thursday.

All three previous days were also affected for the same reason, with the players of both sides left frustrated by the underfoot conditions in what was their last match of the first-class campaign.

The final day decision by umpires Abdoellah Steenkamp and Johan Cloete meant there was no game at all after all three previous days had to be abandoned - the main problem area being the bowlers’ run-up area.

The shared points from the game meant the hosts and defending champions, the Titans, as well as the Knights ended in the bottom three.
