Probe launched after ‘farcical’ washout of India-West Indies Test

The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) has launched an investigation into the washed out fourth and final Test match between the West Indies and India, where only 22 overs could be played at the Queen’s Park Oval.

The Test between the two sides ended in a draw after no play was possible on last day of the match, the fourth consecutive day on which play was ended without a ball being bowled.
The farcical washout came despite long periods of sunshine and desperate efforts by ground officials to make the pitch playable.
