Durban - The domestic one-day cup cricket match between the Dolphins and the Cape Cobras was washed out on Friday, with only 40 minutes possible after persistent drizzle in Durban.

Only 10 overs were played at Kingsmead with the hosts reaching 41 without loss having won the toss and electing to bat first.

Loots Bosman had collected 22 from 24 balls, with captain Imraan Khan on 17 (off 36 balls) when the first spots of rain fell at 3.41pm.

The weather did let up momentarily during late afternoon when hope of play was raised.

However, each time the covers came off, the rain started again forcing the umpires to eventually declare the game a no result.

Both teams were loaded with their Proteas stars including Hashim Amla, Imran Tahir and David Miller for the Dolphins, with Graeme Smith, Mark Boucher and Dale Steyn turning out for the visitors.

The abandonment meant the sides collect two points each with the Dolphins due to play the Warriors in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday, and the Cobras up against the Lions in Johannesburg.
