The Adelaide Strikers' Big Bash League match against the Brisbane Heat has been washed out.
Umpires have abandoned any hope of a reduced overs game at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night and each side will be awarded one point each.
Adelaide have yet to play in the tournament while the Heat move to three points after a franchise-record 103-run win over the Melbourne Stars in the tournament-opener last Thursday night.
The city of Adelaide has recorded more than 30mm of rain in the past 30 hours - more than the monthly average for December.
Umpires had until 9.20pm (AEDT) - some two hours after the scheduled start - to commence play, with a minimum of five overs a side constituting a game.
But after consulting with ground staff and rain still falling, they officially called the game off at 8.25pm (AEDT).
Brisbane next meet the Sydney Thunder in Canberra on Tuesday night.
But the Strikers face a lengthy wait for their campaign to start with their next fixture - against the Thunder at Adelaide Oval - not until December 19.
