Cape Town - Imran Tahir and Senuran Muthusamy finished with four wickets apiece as the rain-affected Sunfoil Series clash between the Dolphins and Knights ended in a draw at Kingsmead on Sunday.‎

Only 27.4 overs were bowled on the final day, with the visitors first bowled out for 221, before the hosts replied with 12/1 - a lead of 102. 

The round four encounter was the clash of the top two before the start, but less than 200 overs were bowled, including the second day washed out. 

The Knights began day four on 176/6, but Proteas star Tahir claimed two of the wickets to fall to end with 4/69 in his first match of the season. 

Muthusamy produced figures of 4/57 after taking the other two wickets, including that of top-scorer Rudi Second for 76 (167 balls, 10 fours, 1 six). 

The Dolphins then lost Imraan Khan (7) with what proved to be the penultimate ball of the game as they walked away with 8.42 points.

The Knights took 6.42 points from the game as they dropped to second behind the champion Titans.
