Day 5 of the Trent Bridge Test was washed out owing to persistent rain.

Moments after tea was taken, after rain washed out the first two sessions, the officials decided to call off play altogether. 

After a long delay due to rain, it stopped raining for a short while and an inspection was scheduled for 2.30 pm.

But all hopes of any cricket vanished as the drizzle got heavier.

As a result, cricket fans lost out on what would been an exciting of cricket.

India were relishing their chances of going up 1-0 as they needed just 157 runs with nine wickets in hand.

Thanks to the draw, both teams will both take four World Test Championship points each from the match.

The next Test starts at Lord’s on Thursday.

England 183 and 303 (Root 109, Curran 32, Bumrah 5-64) drew with India 278 and 52 for 1 (Rahul 26, Broad 1-18)
