Only 18 overs were bowled on day two of the West Indies' tour match against Sussex at the County Ground in Hove on Sunday.

Only 18 overs were bowled on day two of the West Indies' tour match against Sussex at the County Ground in Hove on Sunday.

The Windies finished the day on 46 for two with opener Kieran Powell, 19 not out, and Darren Bravo, unbeaten on one, the men at the crease with just one more day left in the match.

After a complete washout on the opening day, it was another frustrating start to the morning for the tourists as more overnight rain prevented any cricket before 2.45pm.

When play finally got underway, opener Adrian Barath hit two fours in his 16 before he deflected a ball from second-change seamer Kirk Wernars onto his stumps with the score on 24.

No 3 Kirk Edwards had a life before he got off the mark but he was dropped at second slip by Luke Wells off Chris Liddle. However, he didn't make the most of his life as he edged Liddle to third slip when he was on eight.

Only five more balls were bowled before the heavens opened up and players took an early tea. However, conditions failed to improve and stumps were called shortly after 5pm local time.
