16 Jan Dolphins and Knights secure Momentum ODC semi-final spot
POTCHEFSTROOM: The final Pool A fixture of the Momentum One-Day Cup between the VKB Knights and the Hollywoodbets Dolphins has been abandoned without a ball being bowled due to a wet outfield at JB Marks Oval 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 only two matches were possible in Pool A.
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 Momentum Multiply Titans (5 points) have missed out on a place in the knock-out stages of the 50-over competition.
The KwaZulu-Natal outfit and Central Franchise await their semi-final opponents, with Pool B fixtures scheduled to take place from 22-30 January at the same venue in a bio-secure environment (BSE). The Imperial Lions, Six Gun Grill Cobras and Warriors arrive in the North-West town on 18 January.
