    That’s real dampener. WI 54/1 (13.0 Ovs) | India Vs West Indies. Next game at Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago on 11th August. See you all then.The thing we feared the most has happened. The rain caused trouble throughout the day and when it did not rain, the water that the rain gods left behind also caused issues. In the end the combination of both was enough for the umpires to abandon this game. Only 13 overs could be bowled today.
