Saturday’s scheduled opening Twenty20 of a three-match series between the West Indies and Bangladesh at Windsor Park was deemed a no-result as a result of persistent rain.

Bangladesh were put in to bat after a delayed start due to heavy overnight rain, which left soggy parts around the pitch. They were limited to 105 for eight from 13 overs in a staccato inning interrupted twice as additional showers blew down from the mountains around the scenic ground.

Test captain Shakib al Hasan (29 off 15 balls) and wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan (25 off 15 balls) were the only tourists to create any momentum as they lost wickets regularly to a varied home attack led by skipper Nicholas Pooran.

Romario Shepherd led the attack with three wickets for 21 runs from his restricted allotment of three overs. Leg-spinner Hayden Walsh got two for 24, including Shakib, caught behind by Devon Thomas, the wicketkeeper-batsman making his international return at the same venue where he made his senior West Indies debut against the same opponents in 2009.

Shepherd dismissed Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah to set the tourists back even further at 75 for six in the eleventh over, but Nurul’s improvisation and aggression, which followed on his unbeaten 60 in the second Test defeat in St Lucia five days earlier, gave his side hope of a defendable total before he was caught on the square-leg boundary off Odean Smith.

Within minutes of his dismissal, however, the rains returned for a second time, leaving the umpires with no choice but to declare a no-result as the available time, even allowing for a prompt resumption, would not have allowed the West Indies to face a minimum of six overs, and a revised target based on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method, to facilitate a definitive result.

The second match of the series will be played on Sunday at the same location before the scene moves to Providence Stadium in Guyana on July 7 for the series finale.

Additionally, Providence will host the three-match ODI series.

West Indies won the Test series 2-0, defeating Antigua by seven wickets and St. Lucia by 10 wickets.
