The final Pool A fixture of the Momentum One-Day Cup between the VKB Knights and the Hollywoodbets Dolphins has been abandoned without a ball being bowled due to a wet outfield at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on Saturday.

Following overnight rain and a morning shower, umpires Abdoellah Steenkamp and Arno Jacobs ruled that there was no prospect of play an hour before the match was due to start.

The result means only two matches were possible in Pool A.
