Bloemfontein - A wet outfield delayed the start of the Standard Bank Pro20 match between the Chevrolet Knights and the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras at the OUTsurance Oval in Bloemfontein on Sunday.

Drizzle had fallen throughout the morning which resulted in the schoolboy match, due to be held before the Knights/Cobras clash, being called off without a ball being bowled. The rain has stopped for the time being but the field is still too wet to start play.

The umpires will conduct an inspection at 15.15 and hope that play will start at 16.00.

The Knights have played just one match in this season’s competition, a six-run loss on the Duckworth/Lewis method against the Dolphins.

The visitors have enjoyed a mixed start to their campaign. After beating the Titans off the last ball of their match they suffered a last-ball loss to the Lions.


Chevrolet Knights (probable) - Dean Elgar, Reeza Hendricks, Rilee Rossouw, Ryan Bailey, Adrian McLaren (wk), Ryan McLaren (capt), Johan van der Wath, Obus Pienaar, Dillon du Preez, Thandi Tshabalala, Victor Mpitsang.

Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras (probable) - Andrew Puttick, Herschelle Gibbs, Richard Levi, Owais Shah, Justin Ontong, Justin Kemp (capt), Dane Vilas (wk), Vernon Philander, Rory Kleinveldt, Claude Henderson, Charl Langeveldt.
