Basseterre (St. Kitts), Aug 28 (IANS/CMC) Only 28 deliveries were possible as rain wrecked the one-off Twenty20 International between the West Indies and Bangladesh here.

Bangladesh were cruising at 31 without loss after 4.4 overs when heavy rain swept across Warner Park Wednesday night, driving players and officials from the field and resulting in a protracted break of nearly two hours, reports CMC.

When the rain finally eased and the covers were removed, match officials made an inspection and following a discussion, decided to call the encounter off.

The result was disappointing for both teams but especially for Bangladesh who would have been looking to find their stride after three heavy defeats in the preceding One-Day International (ODI) series.

Both teams will now turn their attention to the two-Test series which bowls off Sep 5 at Arnos Vale in St. Vincent.
