Sydney Thunder won't be given win points for last week's lights-out drama at the Gabba as organisers moved to ensure there'd be no repeat of the fiasco at this week's day-night Test.
Cricket Australia (CA) confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that the Thunder's claim to be given two points for Thursday night's clash with Brisbane had been denied, as the correct playing conditions had been followed.
At the time the Heat had been 2-10 after three overs chasing the Thunder's 187, when an external power grid failure forced one of the lights to go out and part of the stadium fell dark.
The Thunder had wanted to play on and offered to bowl spinners, but the match was eventually called off and called a draw given the minimum of five overs hadn't been bowled in the second innings.
That prompted the Thunder to protest the result on Friday, claiming the conditions were safe and it was the Gabba's responsibility as the Heat's home ground to have a back-up power source.
"After reviewing the issues the Thunder presented we have determined that the correct decision was made, and the result of the match will stand," head of Big Bash League Kim McConnie said.
"The umpires on the night applied the correct playing conditions in determining the conditions at the match to be both dangerous and unreasonable due to insufficient light.
"The safety of players and officials is of paramount importance to Cricket Australia and any playing condition relating to the safety of our players is one that is treated very seriously by our match officials."
A frustrated Thunder begrudgingly accepted the decision, just hours before Tuesday's clash with the Renegades.
"While we are disappointed with the outcome, we accept Cricket Australia's decision," Thunder general manager Lee Germon said.
Regardless, the incident prompted concerns over the ground just a week out from Thursday's day-night Test against Sri Lanka.
CA has confirmed with AAP that appropriate repairs have been made since, and power provider Energex will be on site during the Test to ensure that any issues are quickly fixed.
