Rain ruins third ODI

ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada – Not a ball was bowled in the third Colonial Medical One-day International between WINDIES and England on Monday here.
The adverse weather forced a delayed toss and then also stalled the revised 10:35 am start with the hosts set to bat, after England won the toss.
Ground-staff were kept busy bringing on and taking off the covers on the playing area throughout the day, as rain continued practically non-stop.
The match, which marked the 100th ODI for Darren Bravo, was abandoned around 2 ½ hours before the scheduled close with the WINDIES left-hander unable to get a hit.
WINDIES defeated the top-ranked visitors by 26 runs on Friday at Kensington Oval to tie the five-match series at 1-1, after England won a high-scoring first ODI by six wickets two days earlier at the same venue.Officials will hope for better weather for the fourth ODI which gets under here on Wednesday at 9:30 am, as the Windies chase a crucial series lead against the world number one.
The series is tied 1-1 after England won the first ODI by six wickets last Wednesday and West Indies bounced back with a 26-run victory three days later, in the doubleheader in Bridgetown last week.
The final match of the series is set for St Lucia next Saturday.
