With rain denials, where does Team India stand in the World Cup points table? series victory over West Indies for Rohit Sharma and company

India was denied the opportunity to sweep West Indies 2-0 on Day 5 in Trinidad because to rain.

Rain managed to have the last word on two consecutive days, preventing two significant victories in Test cricket. Rain in the Caribbeans on Monday prevented India from completing a series sweep, as it did for England in the fourth Ashes Test on Sunday when rain in Manchester washed out the entirety of the fifth day to give Australia the opportunity to retain the urn. The final day of the second test at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain was completely wiped out by persistent rain, resulting in a drawn Test.

India entered the second Test as the overwhelming favorite after winning the first one in Dominica by an innings and 141 runs. India collected 438 runs in the first innings in Trinidad after being given the opportunity to bat first, riding on Virat Kohli’s 121-run knock, his first triple-digit score away from home in five years, before Mohammed Siraj’s five-wicket haul helped the visitors dismiss West Indies for 255.

India will play their next series in the 2023/25 WTC cycle five months later, when they travel to South Africa for a two-Test contest. The series will begin from December 26 onwards in Centurion followed by the second match in January 3 in Newlands.
