Johannesburg – The One-Day Cup match between the Lions and Knights in Potchefstroom was interrupted by rain on Friday.

The Lions won the toss and batted first, struggling to a total of 250 for seven, off 50 overs.

The Knights were six without loss, after 1.2 overs, when the players left the field.

Although the rain had stopped, there was still lightning about, making it too risky to resume play. – Sapa
