Potchefstroom - The Highveld Lions’ reign in the RAM SLAM T20 effectively came to an end on Friday as their game against the Knights at Senwes Park was abandoned without a ball bowled.

Afternoon rain initially delayed the toss as the ground staff attempted to clear the ground water from the field, and after the Lions had won the toss and chosen to field, another downpour spelled the end of the evening before it had begun.

The two points took the Lions’ tally to five with three games remaining, making their progress to the play-off just about impossible - only three bonus-point wins and an unlikely set of results elsewhere could save them.

The washout also dented the Knights’ hopes - although the two points lifted them briefly into third with 14 points from eight games.

Meanwhile, the match between the Warriors and the Titans at Buffalo Park was also abandoned after rain brought a premature end to proceedings.

The match was initially delayed and then reduced to 12 overs per side, but persistent rain meant that only 11.4 overs could be bowled after the Titans won the toss and elected to bowl, reducing the hosts to 59/9 before the heavens opened up once more to bring a close to the contest.
