Rain continued to play spoilsport as the entire first two sessions on the third day of the second #raisethebat Test between England and West Indies was washed out at Old Trafford in Manchester on Saturday.

Not even a single delivery could be bowled in the two sessions as rain forced players to stay inside their respective dressing rooms.
