Cape Town - The Cape Cobras were left frustrated by rain after they suffered a second successive washout after their clash with T20 Challenge leaders, the Titans, was abandoned at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday.

The men from Cape Town had their clash against the Dolphins completely wiped out by rain at Newlands on Wednesday.

This time there was some action and enough to put them in a commanding position before the skies broke free once more.

Afternoon rain meant the match had to be reduced to a 10-over per side contest, with the Cobras smashing their way to a splendid 115/6.

This was thanks in main to Richard Levi's 45 (27 balls, 4 fours, 3 sixes) and a sensational 28 off 8 balls by Rory Kleinveldt (1 four, 4 sixes) at a strike rate of 350.00.

But only one over of the chase was possible as the top-of-the-table Titans managed 7/0 before it began raining again, which left the umpires little choice but to abandon proceedings.

The defending champions stayed top of the log with 20 points, although their lead was cut to six points by the Warriors, who do have a game in hand.

The Cobras, meanwhile, stayed fourth on eight points from six games.
