Rain plays spoil sport again in the third test after affecting the result of the second test. India could have taken 2-0 lead and win the series before going into the third test had the rain not interrupted the match. It is still raining in Roseau, the venue for the third and final test which has delayed the start of the second day after disrupting most of the first day's play. Only 31.1 overs out of 90 overs were possible on the first day. India dominated the first session of play claiming 3 wickets for just 35 runs on board before second test heroes, Bravo and Chanderpaul, resurrected W.I. innings taking the score to 75 without any further damage before rain interrupted the days proceedings. Ishant Sharma once again tormented the West Indies top order batsmen claiming 2 wickets of 8 overs he bowled giving away 23 runs. Praveen Kumar was the other wicket taker bowler who took one wicket of 10 overs he bowled giving away just 19 runs. With wicket not assisting bowlers so much and rain interrupting the proceedings draw appears to be most likely result of the match giving India third series win in the Caribbean. What do you feel?

In whole Series , Westindies have a new player as no. 12.. which name is Rain. India didn't win second match cause rain spoil half time of game.. and India miss on ly 3 wicket. If Rain is not middle in both team then series result would be 3-0, but what we do.. only hoping about 2-0 win..

Yes rain did play spoilt sport again at the start of the third and final test match between India and Westindies. Having fancied their chances in the second test on the final day and only having salvaged a draw due to rain frustated the Indians who were very close to victory. With just over a thirty overs bowled in the entire day, it final test has not started in the ideal way. Moreover day two belonged to the Indians as they bowled the hosts out for little over two hundred and have also put on eight runs with all wickets intact. The Indians will have to bat well and put up a decent score on the board if they have to get complete control of the game. In this manner they can go ahead and win the final test and finish the series on a high. But again we will have to wait and see how the whether hold up play or if we will be able to get the game underway. Lets hope for a good contest and rain rain please stay away..
