Scorecard

Lions lost ground to their title rivals as they failed to force victory on the final day of a badly rain-affected match at the Wanderers where only 42 overs were possible on day four.

Facing the follow-on with only two wickets left in their first innings, Titans were polished off in three overs after the start was delayed by 45 minutes. Only five runs were added and Imran Tahir took both wickets.

And the run of wickets continued with Chris Morris bowling Pieter Malan in the third over of the follow-on. Jacques Rudolph and Henry Davids steadied with a partnership of 61 until lunch but that was the only stand of any substance.

Rudolph was caught behind in the first over after the break; the first of Hardus Viljoen three victims. Morris then removed Davids for 41 on his way to 3 for 54 after which wickets fell at regular intervals.

With four wickets to take in 25 overs the Lions were big favourites but wicketkeeper Mangaliso Mosehle ate up time with 30 not out and, when the seventh wicket went down, the umpires called play off for bad light.
