Pietermaritzburg - Persistent rain forced the first day’s play between the Dolphins and Knights to be abandoned in their Sunfoil Series clash in Pietermaritzburg.

Heavy rain fell overnight and continued to fall on Thursday morning with a saturated outfield and a wet crease, as a result from a pitch cover being blown off, all adding to the team’s frustration. Play for the day had to be abandoned before the toss could even take place.

The weather forecast for Friday is also unfavourable as more rain is forecast for the remainder of Thursday and is expected to continue on Friday.

 Dolphins captain Daryn Smit said that his side has almost become used to bad light and rain affecting the team as they were denied their first win of the season last weekend when bad light interfered, leaving them three wickets short of a win against the Chevrolet Warriors in East London.

“We’re almost used to being affected by light and rain now, it reached a stage last season where it almost looked like it was following us around,” Smit said.

Both sides are yet to win a match in the Sunfoil Series this season and, with the forecast for Pietermaritzburg looking rather grim, they might have to hold out a little while longer.
