Cape Town - The Dolphins will be holding thumbs that rain doesn't disrupt their plans for the third game in a row when they take on the Highveld Lions in Durban on Wednesday.

The Dolphins' first two games in this season's new 50-over 1 Day Cup competition were washed out. Last Friday they reached 41 without loss against the Cobras before rain ruined the clash at Kingsmead. Their game against the Warriors in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday also yielded a no result due to inclement weather.

"I really hope we can play this time," Dolphins opener Loots Bosman told the Volksblad newspaper.

The Dolphins received two points in both their washed out games, but are languishing at second from bottom on the log standings.

Their opponents for Wednesday's game, the Highveld Lions, have had no problems with rain but are yet to claim any points after two heavy losses - hence their bottom-of-the-log position.

They took a seven wicket pounding at the hands of the Titans last Wednesday and lost by 72 runs to the Cobras on Sunday.

The new format only allows the top three teams to progress (instead of the top four from previous seasons) to the knockout phases, which makes Wednesday's clash at Kingsmead all the more important for both sides - weather permitting!
