Pakistan 212 for 4 (Azam 75, Alam 76*, Roach 3-49) v West Indies

The second day of the second Test between West Indies and Pakistan was washed out completely, with no action possible due to intermittent rain and a wet outfield. The start of play was delayed for a persistent drizzle, forcing the umpires into taking an early lunch. Moments after that announcement, however, the clouds scattered and the rain stopped, only to resume just before a second inspection.

It would be that sort of day, with the weather teasing at the prospect of some cricket, before eventually match officials conceded victory and called it a day at 4.05pm local time.

It leaves the match situation where it was at stumps on day one, with Pakistan having lost four wickets for 212. Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Rizwan are unbeaten, with Fawad Alam having retired hurt on the stroke of tea on the first day.

Play will start half an hour early, at 9.30am local time, on Sunday with 98 overs scheduled to be bowled.

West Indies lead the series 1-0, having triumphed in the first game by one wicket.
