Chester-Le-Street:The fourth and final Test between England and West Indies was abandoned without a ball being bowled because of rain at the Riverside here.

Umpires Billy Bowden of New Zealand and Aleem Dar of Pakistan called the game off for the day following an inspection at 12.30pm local time (1130GMT).

Heavy rain Friday morning meant the pitch and square were all fully covered, with the toss not taking place as players waited in the pavilion.

The match is now set to resume on Saturday at 11.00am (1000GMT).

England have already won the series, going 2-0 up with one to play after their 60-run win in the third Test at Old Trafford completed Monday.
