West Indies lose two before rain wipes out play


West Indies faced just 22 overs before rain wiped out the remainder of play on day one of the fourth Test against India in Port of Spain.

India hold an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series after routing the hosts by 237 runs in the third Test at Gros Islet, and they made early inroads on Thursday.

Kraigg Brathwaite and Leon Johnson (9) made a solid start to their innings before Ishant Sharma (1-7) dismissed the latter with his first delivery, Rohit Sharma taking the catch at short leg.

Dwayne Bravo's (10) presence was short-lived, Ravichandran Ashwin (1-22) slinging one down off stump immediately after being sent to the boundary.

Brathwaite managed to put on an unbeaten 32 and Marlon Samuels three as the Windies hit 62-2 before play was called 68 overs short amid a heavy deluge.
