    It has started to rain at Port of Spain and the chances of us having any play are more or less diminished. Awaiting the official confirmation now

    UPDATE: The covers are back on and we may once again not see any action. Although India have already won the series, they will fail to hang on to their No. 1 spot in Tests, if this match ends in a draw. By the looks of things, that is very much possible. The scheduled inspection has also been scrapped.

Greetings everyone! Welcome to CricketCountry’s live match coverage of the fourth and final Test between India and West Indies, played at Port of Spain. After almost two days’s play being washed out due to persistent rain and wet outfield, the match looks like heading towards a dull draw. West Indies won the toss and came out to bat on Day One. The hosts reached 62 for 2 in 22 overs before rain had all the say till stumps at Day Two. A result looks really out of cards here until West Indies pull off another collapse like they did in the previous Test. The four-Test series is in favour of India with an unassailable lead of 2-0. Full Scorecard: India vs West Indies, 4th Test at Port of Spain

India would be more eager to play the rest of the three days as they have a great chance to become the No. 1 Test team in the ICC rankings. A loss or a draw can take Pakistan to the No. 1 slot as they are breathing down the neck of India with only one point separating the two.

Coming back to the match, Kraigg Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels were at the crease till rain interrupted play on Day One. Ishant Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin took one wicket apiece. India have bolstered their batting by retaining Rohit Sharma and replacing Shikhar Dhawan with Cheteshwar Pujara. It will be interesting to see what these two men do when it is their chance to make an impact, given the fact that they have always been in contention for a spot in the Indian playing XI.
