Rain saves Dolphins’ skin

The rain came to the rescue for the Sunfoil Dolphins on Sunday evening as they shared points with the Chevrolet Knights in their RAM Slam T20 Challenge match after only amassing a paltry 82 all out and then the rain had the last laugh with the home side stealing two valuable points.

A poor performance with the bat put the Sunfoil Dolphins on the back foot after opting to take first strike and they were never in the contest with the bat as they played some indifferent shots and lost wickets regularly on their way to their worst T20 score ever.

Poor shot selection and an electric spell of bowling from West Indian pace man Andre Russell meant that the Dolphins stuttered along to 82 all out and handed the visiting Knights the upper hand before the rain interrupted.

Khaya Zondo was the only shining light for the home side as he top scored with 32 before he was the last man out for the Dolphins but the damage was irreparable and the Dolphins’ inconsistency was highlighted once again.

The Dolphins will be at home again in the coming week with a must-win fixture against the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras on Friday evening.
