Day 2 report: A sodden outfield and more rainfall in the afternoon forced the abandonment of the second day's play without a ball being bowled in the fourth and final Test between the West Indies and India at the Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad on Friday.

Rain and a saturated field had limited play to just 22 overs on the opening day on Thursday.

West Indies are 62-2 in their first innings after winning the toss and choosing to bat, with Kraigg Brathwaite 32 not out and Marlon Samuels unbeaten on four.

India lead the series 2-0, but need to win the fourth Test to prevent Pakistan from overtaking them at the top of the world rankings.

Earlier on Day 1, A saturated outfield and further heavy rain limited play to just 22 overs with the West Indies reaching 62 for two after choosing to bat first against India on the opening day of the fourth and final Test at the Queen’s Park Oval on Thursday.

Prospects of uninterrupted play for the remainder of the match look grim with a forecast of more isolated showers over the next four days.

Since the first Test match was played at the venue in 1930, this is the first time that any international fixture is being played there after the month of June, which represent the official start of the rainy season in the Caribbean.
