“I commend the organisers, grounds staff, other support staff and you, the cricket-loving Dominican public, for presenting our venue as the best place for cricket in the Caribbean. We are, without a doubt, ALL IN with our team,” he added.
Prime Minister Skerrit also participated in the coin-tossing ceremony and wished the West Indies team “All the best”. He stated, “On Saturday, I participated in the coin toss ceremony ahead of the first game at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium in Roseau. WI All in!!”
The coin was flipped on the side of West Indies, and the team opted to bat first. The first T20I match was washed out because of rain and the second match provided a perfect opportunity for both teams to open their account in the series.
The “Playing XI” for both the teams were:
West Indies: Nicholas Pooran (Captain), Kyle Mayers, Keemo Paul, Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Rovman Powell, Odean Smith, Obed McCoy, Romario Shepherd, Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein
Bangladesh: Mahmudullah (Captain), Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Anamul Haque, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed
