Washout a big step towards draw at St Lucia
The St Lucia Test took a big step towards a draw with steady rain not allowing any play on the third day. The match had already gone at a slow pace on the first two days with 11 wickets falling for only 460 runs. There hadn’t been any weather interruption on the first two days; the slowness was down to disciplined West Indies bowling and a slow outfield.
West Indies were 107 for 1, trailing India’s 353 by 246 runs. With two days to go and an outfield slowed down further, chances of a result looked remote. India led the series 1-0 after the win in Antigua and draw in Jamaica. The rain on the third day was so steady play was called off before tea, at 13:45h. Forecast for day four was for early showers but a clear afternoon. (ESPNCricinfo)
