Persistent rain forced the umpires to abandon the fourth day of the second Test at the P Sara Oval in Colombo at 3pm local time. The morning session was scheduled to start at 9.45am, after the final session on the third day was washed out, but a steady rain, to add to overnight showers, meant that no play was possible at all.

Chasing 244 for their first Test win in Sri Lanka, West Indies had lost Kraigg Brathwaite lbw to Dhammika Prasad for 3, minutes before rain forced an early end on the third day.

The second day of the Test was affected by rain as well, with the start getting delayed by 30 minutes. The forecast for the final day does not look promising either.
