Rain washes out Day 2 too in England-Windies Test

June 08, 2012 19:16 IST

Rain washed out the second day of the third and final Test between England and the West Indies at Edgbaston on Friday.

Play was called off at 1350 local time without a ball being bowled.

The opening day was also a wash out and the match became the first Test in England to lose days one and two to the weather for 48 years, since Australia toured in 1964.

Forecasts were for an improvement in the weather for Saturday.

England are seeking a 3-0 series sweep after wins at Lord's and Trent Bridge.
