West Indies 27-1 (I Sharma 1-17) v India
Match abandoned

Fourth One-Day International, Saint Lucia

Heavy rain in Saint Lucia eventually got the better of the two sides, handing India a 2-1 One-Day International series win over the West Indies after the fourth and final match was washed out.

After a one hour delay due to a wet outfield, India put the West Indies in to bat and reduced them to 27 for one with Chris Gayle departing for a second-ball duck but that was as far as the match advanced, a torrential downpour sweeping across the ground.

Despite the rain clearing relatively quickly, the outfield was too sodden for play to resume and the umpires had little choice but to call the match off.

The two sides shared a win apiece in Jamaica before India won a rain-affected match at the same venue by six wickets on Friday.
