Did it rain last night? NO. There is bright sunshine over your head? Yes. So match gonna start on time? NO. Ok, a delay?? The play has been abandoned.

Irked are the Indian players and the fans who have been kept away from the number 1 rank in ICC rankings and that ICC mace which they would have received by virtue of being on top of ICC rankings. A Little rain and poor ground conditions have robbed of a chance of being on the top of ICC rankings.

The day was called off for the third consecutive day which means that a total of 338 overs viz 2028 balls have been abandoned till now. Half of it was enough for the Indian bowlers to send the home team packing but the poor ground conditions did not let this happen.

The day has also marked the end of Indian stay at the Caribbean soil as hardly we may see any more play in this match. Now both the teams will fly to Florida to play two T20I’s.
Unlike this Test series we will see a super show from West Indies team as the current T20 Champions are a much stronger team in this format of the game.

After that, a long home series awaits for Indian team at the home soil with which again the Indian team will have a chance to climb to number 1 in ICC rankings but not getting that ICC mace will pinch Indian players.
