Gloucestershire's FL t20 game against Essex at Bristol was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
With persistent rain falling at Nevil Road, umpires Rob Bailey and Jeff Evans decided that there was no chance of even playing a five-over thrash.
Gloucestershire have taken just three points from seven South Group games. Essex are just a place above, having claimed five points.
Both were suffering their first rain-off in this season's competition.
