West Indies 426 (Ramdin 107*, Best 95, Samuels 76, Onions 4-88) drew with England 221 for 5 (Pietersen 78, Bell 76*)
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
The Edgbaston Test met a watery end as the final day was washed out, leaving England 2-0 winners against West Indies in the three-Test series.
Umpires Tony Hill and Kumar Dharmasena, who were widely criticised for taking the players off for bad light on Sunday, delayed the abandonment until 3.00pm as persistent rain fell upon Birmingham once more and any prospects of play seemed minimal. England were 221 for 5 in reply to West Indies' 426
Only 187.3 overs were possible in the Test which also lost its first two days to rain, the first time this had happened in a Test in England since 1964.
England and West Indies will now contest three one-day internationals in the NatWest Series as well as a Twenty20 international, starting at West End on Saturday. Further unsettled weather is forecast for the rest of the month.
The West Indies will hope for better luck with the weather in their sole warm-up against Middlesex at Lord's on Wednesday which is set to mark the return of Chris Gayle.
