T20 rained out

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts and Nevis (AP) — The one-off Twenty20 cricket international between the West Indies and Bangladesh was abandoned with no result yesterday after a lengthy, heavy shower rendered conditions unfit for play at Warner Park.

Bangladesh, after winning the toss, reached 31-0 off 4.4 overs when rain and strong winds caused ground staff problems as covers were blown around for minutes before they could be placed on the pitch.

Rain abated after an hour, but the pitch was left in a poor condition and umpires Joel Wilson and Peter Nero of Trinidad and Tobago called off the match after a final inspection at 10:35 p.m. local time.

The teams next meet in a two-test series beginning September 5 in St Vincent.
