Dubai. India have slipped to the second spot in the latest World Test Championship (WTC) table after rain washed out the second match against the West Indies.

The Indian team, which reached the finals in the first two cycles of the WTC, started the new cycle on a grand note by winning the first Test in Dominica by an innings and 141 runs. Chasing a difficult target of 365, West Indies scored 76 runs for two wickets on the fourth day of the match in the second Test.
