Johannesburg - Dean Elgar has scored a double century as the Titans drew their four-day series match against the Cobras at Willowmoore Park, in Benoni, on Sunday.

Elgar made 208 before he was forced to retire hurt after over seven hours at the crease as the Titans ended 421 for three, still 63 runs adrift of the Cobras first innings total.

Rain cut short play on the final day, as the players were unable to return to the field before mid-afternoon, when it was confirmed that the match had been drawn.

The result was a disappointment for both sides, with the Titans' hopes of finishing second now looking unlikely and the Cobras still stuck in the race for the wooden spoon.

Earlier, Theunis de Bruyn added just four runs to his overnight total of 56 before he was dismissed by Beuran Hendricks, and after taking two overs to resettle, Elgar and Graeme van Buuren launched spectacularly as they added 86 runs in 10 overs.

Elgar's departure slowed things down again, but Van Buuren was able to end unbeaten on 56 from just 67 deliveries.
