GROS INLET, St. Lucia (AP) Heavy rain washed out the third day of the third test between West Indies and India without a ball being bowled on Thursday.

West Indies had finished the second day on 107-1, trailing India by 246 runs, with Kraigg Braithwaite on 53 and Darren Bravo on 18.

India was bowled out for 353 in its first innings following a lower order collapse. Wriddhiman Saha (104) and Ravichandran Ashwin (118) helped the tourists recover from a poor start.

The teams now have two days to force a result. Day 4 is scheduled to feature 98 overs, but with further bad weather expected, there could be further disruption.

India leads the four match series 1-0.
