Shaky WI start to final Test


Share post:

PORT OF SPAIN – Rain allowed just one and three-quarter hours’ play on the opening day of the fourth and final Test between West Indies and India at Queen’s Park Oval yesterday.

Opting to bat first, the hosts had reached 62 for two when the inclement weather forced an early lunch and play never resumed as heavy rain left the outfield waterlogged, forcing officials to call play off at 2 p.m.

At the time, opener Kraigg Brathwaite was unbeaten on 32 and was partnered by stroke-maker Marlon Samuels on four.

West Indies suffered two casualties in the morning session after rain had also earlier delayed the start by half-hour, forcing lunch to be rescheduled. (CMC)
