Rain halts Windies charge


West Indies' hopes of moving up to and beyond India's first innings total in St Lucia was denied by persistent rain on Thursday.

The hosts gave themselves a solid platform from which to build on day two after reaching the close 107-1, chasing India's 353 all out in the third Test.

However, Darren Bravo and Kraigg Brathwaite were unable to resume their innings' as the weather ensured no play was possible at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet.

Both sides will hope the weather improves on Friday with Brathwaite 53 not out and Bravo unbeaten on 18, with 98 overs to be bowled in the day.
