St George [West Indies]: The third One-Day International between West Indies and England was abandoned without a ball being bowled as rainfall prevented the match at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada. The Caribbean side had impressively levelled the series at 1-1 with a win in the second ODI by 26 runs before going into the game on Monday.

The players, though, did not get onto the field, the toss did take place. England, who had opted to bowl after winning the toss, made two changes in the side that lost the second game. Ben Stokes was rested and replaced by Alex Hales, while Chris Woakes was due to come for Tom Curran. However, it became clear that the rain would deny the play.

West Indies and England will continue the five-match series at the same venue as the sides will meet for the fourth ODI on February 27.
