10:20 PM IST | Ovaise: ARGH!!! Rain had the last laugh and unfortunately, the umpires have decided to call it a day here looking at the weather conditions!! The game was poised well before the start of Day 4 for a fabulous finish. It has been a frustrating day, What a shame!! England were able to pick up a few wickets early on in the but soon after the rain came and ate up most of the day. Lunch was taken early, and 2 hours of play was lost post that. The Groundsmen did a fabulous job in clearing out the excessive water and action returned for a while in the session post-lunch but again as we were heading towards the end, Rain was back and the players were off to their respective dressing rooms. Tea was taken early but the rain continues to pelt down!!
A draw was enviable. There was an outside chance for England if they can bundle the visitors quickly and chase the runs down!! It was an extended day, we were set to have 100 overs, but the rain was relentless not allowing the play to resume. The Umpires decided that the weather isn't going to improve and called it stumps. Right then, the first test match ends in a draw!!!
