The last day of the LV= County Championship match between Hampshire and Yorkshire was washed out.
A day after Joe Root's career-best 222 umpires Nigel Cowley and George Sharp were forced to call off the match soon after the scheduled lunch break.
Heavy showers had left pools of water on the outfield beyond the pitch covering and there was never any question of play being able to resume.
Yorkshire took seven points and Hampshire six.
Joe Root hit a career-best unbeaten 222 to rescue Yorkshire from a potential crisis against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl.
Opening batsman Root, 21, confirmed his growing reputation with an innings of 26 fours and three sixes from 270 balls as the White Rose county recovered to post 350-9 declared.
Root held firm as a flurry of wickets fell at the other end. Overnight partner Gary Ballance added only two to his overnight 17 when he edged left-arm pace bowler James Tomlinson to Liam Dawson in the slips.
Anthony McGrath (five) followed with the score on 103 to a catch by wicketkeeper Michael Bates off Dimitri Mascarenhas and the same bowler struck again to remove Richard Pyrah and leave Yorkshire in trouble on 108-6.
It was then that Root took centre stage, and, after sharing a 53-run partnership with Azeem Rafiq for the seventh wicket, he cut loose to help the Tykes claim four batting points.
A declaration followed, but Hampshire negotiated 12 overs with ease to end on 39-0.
Hampshire claimed three early wickets before rain limited the amount of play to just 26 overs on day two of their LV= County Championship Division Two match against Yorkshire at the Ageas Bowl.
After winning the toss and opting to bowl first in seam-friendly conditions on the south coast, Hampshire's new ball bowlers James Tomlinson and Kabir Ali were amongst the wickets as Yorkshire closed on 83-3.
Adam Lyth was the first Yorkshire wicket to fall when he was trapped lbw by Tomlinson in just the fourth over for only two.
Ali then reduced the White Rose county to 28-3 with the key scalps of Phil Jaques (12) and Jonny Bairstow (0) in successive deliveries.
Both visiting batsmen edged the right-arm pace bowler through to wicketkeeper Matthew Bates, bringing No.5 Gary Ballance to the middle alongside Joe Root in just the 12th over.
However, the pair stood firm, adding an unbroken 55-run partnership before rain arrived, and stayed, shortly after lunch. Root finished unbeaten on 46, with Balance 17no.
Hampshire and Yorkshire were left frustrated by the weather at the Ageas Bowl as the opening day of their Division Two fixture was washed out.
Both counties were delayed in getting back into action in the LV= County Championship when rain meant no play was possible at all on Wednesday.
It had been hoped proceedings could get underway in the final session of play, only for the heavens to open again and force umpires Nigel Cowley and George Sharp to give up any hope of getting any play.
Yorkshire have England international Jonny Bairstow back in their ranks while the White Rose county - who will be led by Phil Jaques in the absence of the injured Andrew Gale - could hand a debut to loan signing Steve Harmison.
