In the case of a no-result, Bangladesh will lift the trophy due to better results in the group stages. If that happens, it will mark Bangladesh's first win in a multi-team ODI tournament

Bangladesh have won the toss and elected to bowl first against West Indies in their tri-nation ODI series final match at Malahide Cricket Club in Malahide, Dublin today. Despite some good bowling effort from the Bangladeshi bowlers, Windies' openers Shai Hope and Sunil Ambris look well set on the crease after the duo scored 68 and 59, respectively.

However, the play has been stopped currently with the onset of heavy rain. Cricinfo reports that Cricket Ireland has confirmed, in the case of a no-result, Bangladesh will lift the trophy due to better results in the group stages.
