A damp squib in the Caribbean
After a narrow 7-run loss yesterday, West Indies took the option to bat first, in the second of the back-to-back T20I against Pakistan at Grenada. With the return of Andre Russell, the home side were at full strength, in their attempt to level the series.
Not surprisingly West Indies wanted to assert themselves, when play started 25 minutes late due to rain. Andre Fletcher had hit two sixes in West Indies score of 15-0 (1.2 overs) when heavy rain took the players off.
There was persistent rain at the ground for more than an hour to the frustration of all. By the time the mopping operation was taken up by the ground staff, there was about 90 minutes from the cut-off time to call off this game. Finally at 14.11 local time, the two umpires did not see the state of the pitch or the outfield fit enough for resumption. After a brief discussion with the two captains – Kieron Pollard and Babar Azam – the game was called off.
