Cape Town - Half centuries from Khaya Zondo and Daryn Smit ensured the Sunfoil Series clash between the Dolphins and Cape Cobras ended without much drama after the final day at Boland Park in Paarl on Sunday.
The match ended in a draw with the visitors reaching 207/4 before the two captain’s shook hands just before tea.
Right-hander Zondo, who hit a career-best 157 in the first innings, hit an unbeaten 57 (110 balls, 6 fours) second time around, while in-form Smit top-scored with 82 (113 balls, 14 fours).
Only three wickets fell in the 53 overs sent down on day four – Imraan Khan (7), Vaughn Jaarsveld (30) and Smit.
The three bowlers to striker were Dane Piedt (1/84), Dane Paterson (1/22) and Stiaan van Zyl (1/18).
The result brought some respite for the Cobras after three losses from their previous four games, although they remain bottom of the table as the only winless team at the halfway stage of the competition.
They walked away with 6.52 points from the match, while the Dolphins took 7.02 points, which left them fourth
