West India vs India: Fourth day called off in first hour
All efforts to get the Queen's Park Oval ready for play were given up in the very first hour of the fourth day. At around 10.25am, the fourth day was called off.
Since the early morning on day two of the Test, there had been barely an hour of rain, but the outfield was in such a bad state that not a ball was bowled for three days. The ground was not fully covered, it didn't have a super sopper, and Test cricket went through another surreal day of no action.
With the Test certain to end as a draw, Pakistan were all set to become the new No. 1 Test team; India needed to win this Test to retain their top spot.
