Live Cricket Score: Windies vs Bangladesh, 1st T20I, St Kitts


Kesrick Williams comes into the attack quite late in the innings, but strikes rightaway. Mushfiqur rahman, who was playing the second fiddle in the fifth wicket stand with Mahmudullah, is out caught at deep third man. 95 for 5 in 10 overs.

Much like Shakib Al Hasan’s approach, Mahmudullah isn’t holding back either. He is taking the attack to Samuel Badree. Bangladesh are scoring at a fair pace. But with four wickets down and not the deepest of batting to rely upon, they need to be a bit more cautious. 66/4

Shakib Al Hasan’s counter-attacking innings has come to an end, courtesy a fine catch at the third man boundary by Kesrick Williams. The catch was referred to the third umpire, and given the new rules, it seemed like a six. But the third umpire didn’t think so. Both Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan have fallen in quick succession. Keemo Paul on a hat-trick.

43/2… 43/3… 43/4

Another flat delivery, another strike. 2 wickets in one over. Soumya Sarkar fails to read the length and is bowled. Poor start for Bangladesh.

After all the talks about the importance of patience on West Indian wickets, Tamim Iqbal steps out of his crease to send Ashley Nurse’s delivery out of the ground. But the offspinner, opening the attack, bowls it flat and away from his body. The southpaw misses it and is out stumped. Windies strike off the first ball of the match.

Despite a heavy drizzle, the match starts only five minutes into the scheduled start.

Windies have won the toss and elected to field. However, as soon as the toss is done, it starts raining. The covers come on and uncertainty prevails on when will the match start.

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan (c), Mahmudullah, Ariful Haque, Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Nazmul Islam, Rubel Hossain
