Wednesday night's storms ruined the opening game of the BDCA Twenty20 competition.
The Golden square versus Strathfieldsaye game was heading for an enthralling finish when the storms hit and the umpires had no choice but to call the game off.

Strathfieldsaye was 1-0 off two balls in reply to Square's total of 9-127.
Jets' opener Pat Felmingham was clean bowled by Square spinner Liam Smith off the first ball of the innings.
Smith delivered one more ball before the lightning in the area saw players leave the QEO surface never to return.
Earlier in the night, the Bulldogs had a number of batters get starts, but none managed to go on and post a better than average score.
Opener Riley Hocking (28 off 14 balls) looked the most dangerous, while marquee player Alex Code (28 off 40 balls) started briskly before being tied down through the middle overs.
Batting at number seven, Smith gave the innings some spark with 26 off 21 balls.
After an expensive first over, Jets' marquee player Taylor Beard recovered strongly to be the most successful bowler with 3-23 off four overs.
Chathura damith picked up two wickets, while left-arm spinner Savith Priyan had a big impact on the game.
Priyan had figures of 1-17 off his four overs and he executed two fine pieces of fielding to run out Hocking and Kayle Thompson.
The next match in the T20 competition is at the QEO tonight as Bendigo United tackles Sandhurst from 6pm.
Strathfieldsaye's second match of the season is against Eaglehawk at Canterbury Park on December 15.
Golden Square's next T20 encounter is not until January 12 at the QEO against Kangaroo Flat.
