BASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC):

Only 28 deliveries were possible as rain wrecked the one-off Twenty20 International between West Indies and Bangladesh here Wednesday night.

Bangladesh were cruising at 31 without loss after 4.4 overs when heavy rain swept across Warner Park at 8:17 p.m., driving players and officials from the field and resulting in a protracted break of nearly two hours.

When the rain finally eased and the covers were removed, match officials made a 10:35 p.m. inspection, and following a discussion, decided to call the encounter off.

Anamul Haque, unbeaten on 19 and opening partner Tamim Iqbal, not out on 11, gave the tourists a solid start after they won the toss and chose to bat.
