Play was abandoned without a ball being bowled on Friday on the second day of the second Test between England and West Indies because of rain.

Heavy rain fell throughout the day, making the pitch unplayable. The umpires conducted a ground inspection at 1500 GMT and with no prospect of the weather improving they decided to abandon play for the day.

England will resume on 302-2 on Saturday, with Alastair Cook 126 not out and nightwatchman James Anderson unbeaten on 4.

England leads 1-0 in the two-match series 1-0.
