Consultation between the umpires now.

It appears that that could be the end of the game.

This pitch is unplayable.

Waiting for official confirmation but it would seem as if it will be 2 points a side.

One has to feel for the Dolphins in this situation. This will be the 5th game in their season that has been abandoned and ended in a no result.

We are still waiting for official confirmation...

Lions coach, Dave Nosworthy is having an animated discussion with groundsman Chris Scott.

It appears that the game has been called off by the umpires. Certain players and coaches are still waiting in the players dug out. Confusion reigns at the Wanderers!

We have official confirmation. The game has been called off due to the pitch being unplayable due to the adverse weather conditions in the past few days.

This situation means that the Lions increase their lead by 2 at the top of the table.

Thats it from me, Rob Sewell. Until next time, cheers!

oh my word, Frylinck tries to bounce it in short, ball hardly carries to the keeper.
Frylinck to de Kock, OUT
oh dear, gets a big top edge as he went on the pull, Miller pouches the catch at a short third man position.

down the leg side, umpire Holdstock airs out his armpits.
Frylinck to Bodi, 1 run
drop and run into the leg side, bowler fields and throws at the non strikers end, had he hit Bodi would have been on his bike.
Frylinck to Bodi, no run
played into the leg side. This pitch is behaving very strangely. Very slow!

Abbott to de Kock, no run
quick dab to backward point, Miller quickly onto it preventing any thoughts of a run.
Abbott to de Kock, 2 runs
another weird bounce, played down to thrid man

This pitch is not playing well at all. Umpires now consulting about something.

Must be about this pitch that has had 2 days of rain to contend with.

Anyway, play will continue

short delivery, Bodi tries to pull but misses
Edwards to Vandiar, OUT
batsman tries to go the aerial route, mistimes it, ball goes sky high, Frylinck must have been worried there for a bit as the ball swirled around. He nearly misjudged it but ultimately took the catch.
