West Indies-Pakistan 1st T20I called-off after persistent rainfall

The match was reduced to a nine-over contest but did not start after West Indies' innings

Persistent rainfall forced the abandonment of the first T20 International (T20I) of a four-match series between the West Indies and Pakistan as a no-result at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Wednesday (July 28). After steady rain delayed the start of play by almost three hours and reduced the match to nine overs-per-side, West Indies totaled 85 for 5 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 rains 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 (ODI) 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 the Providence Stadium in Guyana starting on Saturday (July 31).

Brief scores:

West Indies 85 for 5 in 9 overs (Kieron Pollard 22*, Nicholas Pooran 13; Hasan Ali 2 for 11) vs Pakistan
