The Sharks needed a win from the final round of fixtures but a full day of precipitation ended their hopes of progression.

Constant rain all day put any plans of play to bed with umpires Graham Lloyd and Michael Burns finally calling the match off at 4:50pm.

Hampshire required a win, hope Gloucestershire beat Surrey and a large swing in net run rate to progress to the quarter finals.

But after the game in Bristol was abandoned their hopes of qualifying were destroyed.
