Rain claims day three in Potchefstroom

After dominating the first two days with the bat the Hollywoodbets Dolphins' fourth round CSA 4-Day Domestic Series clash against the North West Dragons was hampered by rain in Potchefstroom that prevented a ball being bowled on the third day on Saturday.

After posting an imposing 400/9 declared, the Dolphins looked to be holding all the cards, with the home side trailing by 396 at the close of play on the second day.

However relentless rain over the North West province on Saturday meant that the match could not resume, and with one day remaining in the key fixture for the Dolphins, the outcome possibilities have shifted markedly.

With the weather forecast predicting a clearing of the rainclouds over the JB Marks Oval, Marques Ackerman and his men will be eager to get the match underway on Sunday to ram home their advantage.

SUMMARY OF SCORE - Hollywoodbets Dolphins v North West Dragons
First innings:
Hollywoodbets Dolphins 400/9 declared
M. Ackerman 123, R. de Swardt 71,
B Parsons 65, K. Petersen 54, D. Potgieter 5/58
North West Dragons 4/0
No play was possible on day three
