Bad weather has eaten up another game of cricket. Not sure either of the teams will mind it, the series is very much open. Let's see if West Indies can turn things around, England appear too confident at the moment.

!

Well, the rain has had the final say. The much dreaded thing has finally happened. Seemed just a matter of time before the officials called it off. MATCH ABANDONED DUE TO RAIN!

!

1524 local time update - Nothing much to update. Just when we were hearing that the rain is easing off, the heavens took offense and it is raining steadily now.

!

News coming in is that we must resume the game by 5.56 pm local time for a 20-over game. We still have a lot of time left. Fingers crossed.

!

1312 local time update - Bad news folks! Just as we were about to start the rain is back. The covers are also being brought on. Seems like we are in for a lengthy delay. The wait prolongs.

!

Good news, the rains have relented and we will be starting in less than 10 minutes. No overs lost.

!

Well the rain was expected, this looks like a passing shower so let's hope it clears up soon.

!

The umpires have decided to call for the covers. The players are making their way out and let's hope we are just off for a short delay.

Jason Holder to Alex Hales

That's surely silly running! Fuller length delivery around off, Hales defends it towards point and is off the blocks for a single. There was no run there yet both the batsmen go for it. Kyle Hope, the fielder has a shy at the striker's end but he fails to score a direct hit. Had he hit, Bairstow was a goner. A single taken.
