The rain washed out all South Burnett Cricket Association junior and senior cricket games scheduled to be played on Saturday.
The Preliminary Final in the Gympie A Grade 40-Over competition – due to be played between Wooroolin Warriors and Gympie Colts on Saturday – was also washed out in Gympie.
This match had been to determine the second spot in Grand Final of the 40-over competition.
As the game was officially declared a draw, Warriors will now go through to face Murgon Crusaders in the final, scheduled to be played at Keith Manthey Oval in Gympie on December 11.
