One Day Cup

Rain has final say as Dolphins, Warriors share One Day Cup trophy

2018-02-03 18:22

Cape Town - The One-Day Cup title has been shared by the Dolphins and the Warriors after the second attempt to play the final failed due to rain at Kingsmead in Durban on Saturday.

The match on the Reserve Day was abandoned without a ball being bowled – a little under 24 hours after the initial clash had to be called off for the same reason on Friday.

The first attempt at least saw 39.4 overs being bowled, but there was no action at all on the second attempt after it rained through the night and continued to drizzle for large parts of Saturday in the east coast city.

It left underfoot conditions wet and dangerous for the players, with umpires Allahudien Paleker and Bongani Jele waiting until just before 5pm before declaring the match a no result.

There was no loser in the end with the Dolphins going on to secure their first 50-over trophy of the franchise era – a wait of 16 years.

For the Warriors, it was their first trophy since they won both white-ball titles back in 2009/10.
