9.38 pm The game has been abandoned. West Indies have won the series 2-0. Pity, it had to end like this but that's that. Thanks for joining us. Good bye and good luck.

9:15 pm Raining again. The covers are back on. It's pouring down. Things are looking gloomy. Would it stop soon and will they have time to mop the ground dry? Tricky situation here. It's still raining.

8:57 pm: The umpires will inspect the conditions in a short while again.

8:48 pm The match referee walks out with Simon Taufel. There is still some concern over the wet outfield. So the drying process continues.

8.43 pm It's stopped raining a short while back. The umpires have been out there, checking the state of the outfield. No official word yet, on the start time. The umpires are working out the D/L targets. Once they finish that, they will start the game.

8:05 pm Rain suspends play. Cozier informs that the breeze is blowing pretty hard and it might just be a passing shower. No play for the moment, though. The wind is indeed pretty strong. Meanwhile, the rain gets heavier.
