Rain continued to delay the start of the third and final Test between England and the West Indies at Edgbaston.

Birmingham, England – Rain continued to delay the start of the third and final Test between England and the West Indies at Edgbaston on Friday after washing out Thursday's first day completely.

A fourth straight session was lost to the weather, with no play before lunch on Friday after fresh early morning rain saw the pitch and square remain fully covered at the scheduled start of 12pm.

Not since 1964, during an Ashes clash at Lord's, have the first two days of a Test in England been washed out without a ball being bowled.

As the toss has yet to take place, neither side have named their team.

England have an unbeatable 2-0 lead in this three-match series. – Sapa-AFP
