WI vs IND: The second match of the two-match Test series between India and West Indies seems to be interrupted due to rain. Where from the second day onwards, the overs of the match were seen decreasing due to rain. On the other hand, due to rain on the fifth day, the game of the first session has also been almost washed away. India needed 8 wickets to win on the last day. At the same time, the West Indies team was 289 runs behind the target given by India. On the last day, it was expected that the Indian bowlers would wrap up the Caribbean batsmen quickly, but the rain has currently dampened the hopes of the Indian fans and the team. It has to be seen what will be the result of this match, but if the match ends in a draw, then Team India will win the series but it may suffer a huge loss.

Actually we are talking about the points table of the third cycle of the World Test Championship that Team India may suffer.
