India were comfortably placed at 333-4 at the end of first day’s play with Shikhar Dhawan (60), Gautam Gambhir (54) and Cheteshwar Pujara (57).

Heavy overnight and morning showers put paid to any chances of the game starting on time during the morning session. The weather did improve during the post-lunch session, but more rain later in the afternoon made sure that the second day was abandoned.
