    Background: CRICKET: RAIN MARRED THE FIRST DAY OF THE SECOND TEST BETWEEN ENGLAND AND THE WEST INDIES AT LORD'S TODAY (THURSDAY). MUCH OF THE DAY WAS WASHED OUT, AND AT STUMPS THE WEST INDIES WERE 155 FOR 4.

    PLAY BEGAN IN SUNNY, THOUGH HUMID, CONDITIONS. THERE WAS A BIG CROWD AND A RECORD GATE HAS BEEN FORECAST. AMONG THEM WERE HUNDREDS OF WEST INDIANS HOPING TO SEE THEIR TEAM REPEAT ITS CRUSHING WIN BY AN INNINGS IN THE FIRST TEST.

    COLIN COWDREY, TAKING OVER THE ENGLAND LEADERSHIP FROM THE DISCARDED MIKE SMITH, LED HIS SIDE OUT. CONRAD HUNTE AND MIKE CAREW OPENED FOR THE WEST INDIANS. KEN HIGGS STRUCK FOR ENGLAND HAVING CAREW CAUGHT BEHIND BY PARKS FOR 2.

    ROHAN KANHAI PLAYED SOME LIVELY STROKES BEFORE GOING FOR 25 WHEN HIGGS HAD HIM CAUGHT LOW DOWN AT FIRST SLIB BY TITMUS. AT 51 FOR 2, AFTER AN HOUR'S PLAY, RAIN STOPPED PLAY. WHEN IT WAS RESUMED MORE THAN HOURS LATER, HIGGS SOON GAINED A THIRD VICTIM WHEN HUNTE WAS CAUGHT BY PARKS FOR 18.

    BARRY KNIGHT GOT THE FOUGHT WICKET -- BASIL BUTCHER MISTIMING A HOOK TO BE CAUGHT FOR A GAY 49. KNIGHT ALMOST HAD SKIPPERS GARY SOBERS OUT OFF HIS NEXT BALL, BUT TITMUS IN SLIPS DROPPED THE DIFFICULT CHANCE.
