The second game of the T20I series between West Indies and Bangladesh will be played on July 3 at the Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica. The first T20I was washed out due to rain and both sides will look to get lead in the series in the second T20I.
Persistent rain resulted in the game being reduced to 16-overs per side. West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran won the toss and opted to bowl first. Bangladesh got off to a solid start thanks to experienced campaigner Shakib Al Hasan. He smashed 29 off 15 balls but departed in the eighth over just before the rain-break.
The game was again curtailed to 14-overs per side and Bangladesh scored 105 for the loss of eight wickets before the rain arrived. No further play was possible and the match was abandoned.
Romario Shepherd was brilliant with the ball for the hosts as he picked up three wickets, giving away only 21 runs in his three overs. Hayden Walsh Jr. also chipped in with a couple of scalps.
Bangladesh’s batters failed to contribute as they suffered a mini-collapse in their innings. They will look to contribute in the second game. West Indies’ bowlers were good in the first T20I and will look to keep the momentum going in the second T20I on Sunday.
