Match Notes


General
    • Play was suspended after 10.1 overs (56 minutes) after the batsmen had been struck several times by balls which lifted dangerously off a length. Lengthy discussions ensured and after another 10 minutes the players left the field. An hour-and-a-half later the match was abandoned.
    • An additional Test was scheduled for 5-9 February at Port-of-Spain
    • David Richards, the ICC chief executive, said: "It is possible for ICC to rule that the match should be scrubbed out, but I think it is unlikely." Eventually it was ruled that the Test was valid and all performances counted towards career records
