MATCH NOTES
Day 1
  • England 1st innings
  • The match was abandoned after ten balls because the bowlers were unable to get any solid footholds in an overly sandy outfield. Alan Hurst, the ICC match referee, ruled: "The ground conditions, and especially the bowlers' run-ups, were unfit and potentially dangerous and we decided it would not be possible to rectify those fundamental issues over the course of a day or so."
  • The Test was moved to the old Antigua Recreation Ground with play scheduled to start on Sunday, February 15, two days later.
  • The statistics from the abandoned Test count towards career records.
