Warriors & Dolphins draw in Durban

09:53 (GMT+2) Mon, 09 Jan 2017

THE Sunfoil Series clash between the Hollywoodbets Dolphins and Warriors drifted out to a draw after further delays hampered their clash at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in Durban on Sunday.

With only 49 overs possible on day two and no play at all on Saturday all due to rain, a wet outfield held up proceedings on the final morning.

Lunch was eventually taken early and play reduced to 69 overs for the day, although only 40 of those were possible as the hosts pushed on from 243/2 to 361/4 in that period.

Vaughn van Jaarsveld was eventually dismissed for 154 (204 balls, 14 fours, 5 sixes) and shared in a 116-run third-wicket partnership with Cody Chetty (46) in what was the highlight of the day.

Both men eventually fell to Basheer Walters (2/91) within two overs of each other as Khaya Zondo and Morne van Wyk (both 16 not out) batted out the remainder of play.

Despite the result, the Dolphins still managed to jump up to second on the competition standings after walking away with 9.22 points.

They now have a total of 63.8 points, less than a point behind leaders the Multiply Titans (64.74), while the Warriors (58.42) are also within striking distance in fourth.
