Alastair Cook hit a double century.

Rain stopped England’s progress in the Day-Night Test against West Indies at Edgbaston on Friday. Alastair Cook scored his Test career’s fourth double century to help England declare at a massive 514 for the loss of eight wickets before James Anderson removed Kraigg Brahwaite to put West Indies in trouble. But the visitors managed to survive before rain arrived with them at 44 for the loss of one wicket. Play was abandoned later due to heavy rains.
