Kingston (Jamaica): The second One-day International cricket match between India and West Indies was also abandoned on Sunday without a ball being bowled due to continuous downpour. With the first match also being abandoned on Saturday due to a slushy outfield, the five-match series has now been reduced to a three-match affair.

The umpires came out this morning and quickly went inside to formally announce the expected, that the match was being abandoned for the second time in as many days. Heavy downpour since last night rendered the Sabina Park unplayable with pools of water all around. Even the motley that had gathered on Saturday in hope of catching some action, kept off on Sunday due to relentless rain. The third match of the series is scheduled at Kensington Oval, Barbados, on Wednesday.
