Hampshire's FP t20 South Group match with Essex was washed out without a ball being bowled at the Ageas Bowl.
Pools of water on the outfield after overnight rain and more showers on Sunday morning made for difficult mopping-up operations for groundsman Nigel Gray.
Umpires made three inspections before calling off the match soon after 5pm just when it looked as if a five-over-per-side match might still be played.
With both sides being awarded one point each that was enough to take the home side through to the quarter-finals but Essex were made to wait to see if they also got through by virtue of run rate.
It was the second successive Hampshire home match ruined by the weather after Friday's clash with group winners Sussex went the same way.
