With the series already reduced from a five-match contest due to a Covid 19-enforced delay during the preceding ODI series against Australia at the same venue, this latest setback leaves the series now as a best-of-three duel

Persistent rainfall forced the abandonment of the first T20 International of a four-match series between the West Indies and Pakistan as a no-result at Kensington Oval in Barbados Wednesday.

After steady rain delayed the start of play by almost three hours and reduced the match to nine overs-per-side, the West Indies totalled 85 for five batting first.

Captain Kieron Pollard top-scored with an unbeaten 22 while seamer Hasan Ali led the bowling effort for the visitors with figures of two for 11 off two overs.


However the rain returned just as the home side's innings was coming to an end and after some deliberation the umpires announced the abandonment of the match.

With the series already reduced from a five-match contest due to a Covid 19-enforced delay during the preceding One-Day International series against Australia at the same venue, this latest setback leaves the series now as a best-of-three duel.

The remaining matches will be played at Providence Stadium in Guyana starting Saturday.
