The umpires are now having a close look. Lot of saw dust around, as you would expect.

10.22 am The covers are off. The news just in is that there will be a pitch inspection at 10:30 am. Players trickle out to the middle.

10.20 am The umpires are out there with the groundstaff. The centre cover is still on.

Rain has stopped and the other good news is that Barbados has a good drainage system from when the ground was redeveloped. The Groundstaff are out there in the middle and doing what they do.

9.30 am The rain has stopped. Let's see when they go for the toss. Hope it all clears up and we have a game soon.

Simon Garfunkel time: "Bad news bad news, heard you packing to leave!"

9.00 am Hello and welcome to rain. It's raining out there in Barbados. The covers are on. The toss will be delayed. And the rain doesn't look it will stop immediately. That's that. We shall come back with more updates.

Amir from T&T: "@Shahid: I totally agree.. why on earth does Edwards, or Samuels for that matter come in before Dwayne Bravo? Ridiculous. WI tend to do this always... save back the better batsman for the 'end'.. it's like they almost always anticipate a collapse. So what happens is that the better batsman comes in when all is already lost, and has to try to perform a miracle, and gives his wicket away. Then it is said he is a failure. Case in point - Pollard."

Errol: "Domestic bullies like Samuels give selectors a bad name, they make a set of runs and some people call for the selectors' head to play them and most of the times they go out and fail"

Sial: "@Ali, i think Pakistan want to win the series first without experimenting and the best way to do that was by bowling first today. The experimentation will begin in the 4th ODI, assuming Pakistan win today."

38.5

Wahab Riaz to DJ Bravo, OUT, Another one ! What is happening out there? Poor thinking. It was a short-of-length delivery outside off and Bravo tried to knife through the line but could't handle the extra bounce. The ball wobbled away to long-on. Batting Powerplay is yet to be taken

DJ Bravo c Ahmed Shehzad b Wahab Riaz 11 (25m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

Daren: "This WICB is derailing the future of WI cricket. A captain who is not performing with neither bat nor ball is leading novices like Smith, Edwards and Samuels! This is incredible!"

Alan: "Do people still watch west indies cricket? As a west indies fan for the past 20 years i have given up any hope. I am not sure who is worse.....the spoilt players or the WICB"

Errol Erskine: "Not a fan of Ganga, but after scoring back to back hundreds against Aus. he cant be such a bad batter. Given his leadership qualities, he should be given the captaincy and forget about all this insularity and I am not a Trini."

172 to win. Join us in a while for the run chase. Time for a break now.
