The heat Rule Policy adopted by CAW Hume clubs earlier this year forced the cancellation of round seven of CAW Hume cricket.
All matches in senior and junior cricket were cancelled, with the forecast temperature of 42 degrees forcing the cancellation.
Under the CAW Hume guidelines, if the forecast temperature broadcast on ABC radio at 6pm on the Friday night at Corowa weather station is 42 or over all cricket is cancelled.
The rule was generally put in place to allow teams and clubs the opportunity to replan weekend activities with no cricket commitments.
The cancellation follows on from the first two rounds being severely affected by rain.
This week, round eight, will be the last before the mid-season break.
The match of the round will be the clash at Ten Mile Creek Oval between third-placed Holbrook and big improvers Brock Burrum who are second.
Top team Walla will travel away to Lockhart to take on the Demons, who are sitting just outside the top six on net run rate.
Culcairn will be keen to build on its huge upset win over Rand from its last outing when they host sixth-placed Osborne.
TRYC is virtually playing for its season when they are at home to the in-form Henty who are equal in third with Holbrook.
The final match will be defending premiers Rand at home to last-placed Walbundrie. The Pigeons will be keen to atone for its loss to Culcairn.
Henty all-rounder Shannon Terlich leads the run-scoring, with 178. TRYC Todd Hannam 138, Hamish Mackinlay Holbrook 135 and Walla captain Tom Simmonds 126 are close behind.
The leading wicket-taker, with 13, is Holbrook skipper Corey McCarthy, with Lockhart's Jordan Renner 11. Ryan Kirkwood TRYC and Mark Taylor Walla both have taken 10 wickets.
All clubs so far have reported excellent compliance and adherence to the COVID19 protocols put in place in the preseason.
