Durham were denied the chance to record their first LV= County Championship win of the season as rain washed out the final day's play of their match with Warwickshire at Chester-le-Street
The hosts were 227 ahead with three second innings three wickets remaining, but the players did not make it back out on the field as the contest was abandoned as a draw.
It means Durham have reached the halfway point of the campaign with only 36 points - at the same stage last season they had 139.
While Durham coach Geoff Cook was delighted with the performance of Sunderland seamer Chris Rushworth, who took his maiden five-wicket haul, he also praised the bravery of nightwatchman Jamie Harrison.
The 21-year-old Sedbergh School product was sent in to perform the role in both innings and survived for 75 minutes in tough conditions on the third morning to make 23.
Cook, who worked with the left-arm bowler on his batting during the winter, said: "Jamie has a lot of character and he has enjoyed the opportunity to play at this level.
"There were questions about his batting 12 months ago but he has gone away and worked hard at it. He has some bravery and he has a defence now. He is also starting to put one or two shots together."
