Cape Town - The Knights and the Highveld Lions saw their One-Day Cup playoff prospects suffer a blow after their latest
meeting in Bloemfontein was washed out by rain on Saturday.
Only 9.3 overs were possible at the Mangaung Oval before the
first rain delay arrived.
And after several signs suggested that the game could be
about to resume, it never did as umpires Greg Davidson and Johan Cloete
eventually called time in the Free State.
The visitors had progressed to 22 for one during the overs
that had been bowled, but they were left frustrated in their bid for a result.
The two teams remained at the bottom of the standings, with
the Johannesburg-based side fifth on 10 points from eight games and the hosts
sixth with four point from six matches.
