Rain washes out second ODI between England and West Indies
England 21-0 (Hales 10no) v West Indies
Second One-Day International at Trent Bridge
Match Abandoned due to rain
Heavy and continuous rain led to the abandonment of the second One-Day International between England and West Indies at Trent Bridge without a result.
Despite, a poor forecast, the proceedings started on time with West Indies opting to bowl first on winning the toss. West Indies opener Chris Gayle was forced out of the game with a hamstring injury.
England openers Alex Hales (10 not out) and Jonny Bairstow (9 not out) started the innings positively with 20 runs in the first two overs. However, with two more deliveries, the play was halted due to rain.
Even though, a restart at 13:15 local time was planned by the officials, the skies once again opened up leading to the abandonment of the game two hours later.
The third game will be played in Bristol on Sunday with England having a 1-0 lead following their seven wicket win in the first game at Old Trafford.
