West Indies 272 for 4 (Hinds 113, Lara 93*) trail Sri Lanka 354 by 82 runs



The first Test heads towards a watery end

Inspection followed inspection at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia on the scheduled fourth day of the first Test between West Indies and Sri Lanka. There was a lot of rain overnight, but after the weather relented it looked as if a start might be made after tea - but the ground was still wet in places, and as the clouds closed in again the umpires, Billy Bowden and Daryl Harper, finally admitted defeat and called play off for the day.

Play will start earlier than scheduled tomorrow, weather permitting, but with only one day's play left and West Indies' first innings not yet completed, it seems certain that St Lucia's inaugural Test - the first of this short two-match series - will end in a draw.
