Cape Town - Rain and a wet outfield meant there was no day two play possible between the Dolphins and the Knights in their 4-Day Domestic Series encounter in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.

The hosts would have been hoping to press on from their 330 for six advantage at the start, but were greeted by rain initially at the City Oval.

It was then mop up time, which forced an early lunch, but after inspecting conditions during the early afternoon, umpires Clifford Isaacs and Murray Brown and their team, in conjunction with the groundsman, deemed that the wet outfield would not be ready in time to get any play in.

They then decided to call stumps early, meaning that Senuran Muthusamy will resume with his unbeaten on 81 (123 balls, 8 fours, 2 sixes) on day three, with Eathan Bosch (7) alongside him.
