Rain consumes second consecutive day at oval, draw on the cards

There was bright sunlight here in Queens Oval for the second consecutive day at the start of the day but rain in the afternoon ended it all. The early morning scenes at the ground were heartbreak for an Indian fan. The ground staff was still busy pouring out water from the damp ground and was digging part of the ground in order to flow moisture out of that area. The condition of the ground can be adjudged by the fact that even the bright sunlight was unable to dry up the ground. The drainage system is not the best here and it is to be noted that this ground has hosted most matches in comparison to any other ground in the Caribbean.

With the loss of today’s day, we have lost the second consecutive day and a total of 8 sessions have been washed out till now.

A slip to the second place is confirmed in case this Test match ends in draw and chances of this looks pretty fair now. According to the experts, it’s all over for Indian team in this Test match.

Still, the Indian players still have some ray of hope as, unlike yesterday they reached ground early today only to return empty handed.

The day has almost also marked the end of Indian stay on 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.
