The second day’s play of the fourth and final Test between India and the West Indies was washed out due to rain. Only 22 overs were possible on day 1 on Thursday as the hosts finished the opening day at 62 for the loss of two wickets. Catch highlights of India vs West Indies here.
So the second day of the fourth Test has been called off due to rain. Indian skipper Virat Kohli would be disappointed as he was looking forward to wrest control in the initial days of the match Hope we get to see some action on Day 3 of the Test. So that’s all for today’s coverage. Good Night!
It has begun to rain and the covers have been brought into the field. Slim chances of any action.
Still 26 minutes to go for the inspection. India would be disappointed as things have not worked as per their plans. Hope we get to see some action on the second day.
Friday has not been a good day for cricket. The first day of the first Test between South Africa and New Zealand at Durban was also marred with poor visibility. However, it did not stop the Kiwis from putting themselves in a commanding position against the Proteas. South Africa were 236/8 at stumps.
A wet outfield means that play is unlikely to resume anytime soon today. The first session has been called off, and the next inspection is at 12 am IST.
Meanwhile, the umpires in Port of Spain just finished an inspection of the outfield and are not amused. The next inspection will take place at 10:30 pm IST.

Coming up next, badminton sensation PV Sindhu will take on Spain’s Carolina Marin in a high-octane women’s singles finals at Rio Olympics.
India’s bowlers will look to pin down West Indies batsmen on the mat in the first session on Friday. Caribbean batting frailties surfaced on Thursday once again. The hosts will be disappointed to lose two wickets on a slow track.
Kraigg Brathwaite (32 not out) will start the proceedings with Marlon Samuels (4 not out).
Inconsistency has been a huge problem with most of the Caribbean batsmen making a decent score here and there but also getting dismissed cheaply as often as not. Samuels, for example, has made 51, 37 and 48 and has also gone for one, nought and 12.
Indian bowlers will once again sniff their chance with a ball still new and hard.
