Third ODI Between Windies and England Washed Out

The third One-Day International between Windies and England was washed out without a ball being bowled at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada on Monday (February 25). With two more ODIs to go, the series is currently levelled at 1-1.

England opted to field after they won the toss which was already delayed because of rain.

On a couple of occasions the conditions improved sufficiently for the umpires to decide on revised regulations for a rain-reduced match, only for the rains to return and remove any chance of playing a minimum 20 overs-per-side match.

As the coin was tossed, the match counts as an official ODI which will be a particular disappointment for Darren Bravo as the Windies batsman was hoping for a more significant occasion to mark his 100th match in the format.

Having lost the Test series 1-2, England made a mockery of the 361-run target as Jason Roy and Joe Root scored superb centuries in the first encounter to hand England a 1-0 lead in the series.

Windies, however, made a remarkable comeback in the second ODI on the back of Shimron Hetmyer and Sheldon Cottrell to level the series 1-1.

The fourth ODI will also be played at the same venue in Grenada on February 27 before the final match takes place in St Lucia on March 2.
