First T20 abandoned after Shakib-Sohan’s stormy batting

The first T20 match between Bangladesh and West Indies has been abandoned due to rain. The Tigers got a chance to bat in the first innings but did not bowl any ball in the second innings. As a result, the match officials were forced to cancel the match at the end of one inning.

After losing the toss in Dominica, the Bangladesh team was named to bat first. In the opening position, Anamul Haque Bijay, who was called up for T20 after six years, was seen with Munim Shahriar. Although this pair could not take advantage at first. When the match started after an hour and a half due to rain, the length of the innings was reduced to 16 overs. In the first innings, Munim and Vijay combined to score only 2 runs in the opening match.

The pair broke up when Munim left the field after becoming the victim of Akil Hossain by scoring 2 runs as the first batsman. However, Vijay was leading the team by forming a partnership with Shakib Al Hasan who came down to number three.

The batsman left the field after becoming the victim of Obed McCoy for 16 off 10 balls. Although Liton, Mahmudullah and Afif Hossain Dhrubo failed, Shakib continued to bat in a somewhat aggressive mood. A great innings of 29 runs from 15 balls came from Shakib’s bat. When the second half of the rain hit, the length of the innings was further reduced to 13 overs, but Nurul Hasan Sohan continued to bat in his own mood.

When Sohan returned with 25 runs off 16 balls, Bangladesh lost 6 wickets in 13 overs and stopped the innings at 106 runs. Romero Sherffert took 3 wickets for 21 runs for West Indies. Hayden Walsh took 2 wickets and Achilles, McCoy and Smith took 1 wicket each. Short scorecard: Bangladesh: 106/6, Shakib 29, Sohan 25, Liton 9 Sheffert 21/3, Walsh 24/2, McCoy 18/1
