Dolphins & Lions share One Day Cup title

Durban - As the Hollywoodbets Dolphins were in the process of chasing 226 in the Momentum One Day Cup final against the Imperial Lions the rains came to Potchefstroom which forced umpires to abandon the match and hand both sides a share of the trophy.

It's the second shared trophy in the last four seasons with the Dolphins involved in both after they shared the title with the Warriors in the 2017/18 season. They were also awarded the title in the 2019/20 season which means they have won or shared the trophy in three of the last four seasons.

In the final the Dolphins had restricted the Lions to 225 for seven in their 45 overs after weather had interrupted the start of the match.

Eathan Bosch was the pick of the Dolphins bowlers when he returned figures of four for 41 in nine overs while there were wickets for Rob Frylinck, Prenelan Subrayen and Senuran Muthusamy.

In their reply the Dolphins lost Grant Roelofsen and Marques Ackerman cheaply before Michael Erlank and Ruan de Swardt began a rebuild to the innings.

When the rain came down in Potchefstroom the Dolphins were 37 for two with Erlank 20 not out and De Swardt undefeated on 13.

The CSA T20 Challenge is the next competition and Cricket South Africa have announced that Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium will host the bio-secure bubble from 19-28 February.
