After rain forced the first ODI between India and West Indies to be abandoned on August 8 at Guyana, India skipper Virat Kohli stated that rain interruptions were the worst part of cricket. 

The match had started over 90 minutees late due to a wet outfield, and when play resumed, the match was curtailed to 43-overs a side. However, another sharp spell of rain cut the match further to 34 overs a side, but a third spell of rain forced the umpires to call off the game. 

Kohli commented that rain interruptions that force a player to go out and then back onto the field again is the worst feeling. 

"It's probably the worst part of cricket, a stop-start is never a good feeling. Either it should rain out or play the full game. The more stops you have, the more you want to be careful to ensure that the players don't injure themselves," Kohli said in a post-match presentation.

"A few pitches might have good pace and bounce, while others can be a bit slower and difficult. So you have assess them and play accordingly," Kohli added when asked on playing in the West Indies.

The second ODI between the two teams will be played on August 11 at Port-of-Spain.
