The second day of the third Test match at Edgbaston was again totally washed out.
Heavy rain in the West Midlands has meant that for the first time since 1964, the first two days of a Test match have been abandoned without a ball being bowled.
England will now find it tough to seal a 3-0 series victory with just three days of cricket remaining. The good news for the county hosting the event is that the weather is set to improve over the weekend and there is expected to be play tomorrow.
Warwickshire would have lost a large amount of money paying back ticket prices for the first two days, which comes as a blow to the county who are hoping to pay-off a debt built up from the building of the new stand at the pavilion end of the ground.
