Rain delays the start of the fifth day of the third cricket Test match between England and the West Indies at Edgbaston in Birmingham, central England, on June 11, 2012. England were 221 for five in reply to West Indies' first innings 426, a deficit of 205 runs and needing a further 56 to avoid the follow-on, in a match where the first two days had been washed out completely.
