Wednesday's one-off Twenty20 International between the West Indies and Bangladesh at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts, ended in a washout.

Inclement weather allowed for a mere four overs and four deliveries, after visiting skipper Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and opted to bat first.

Bangladesh moved to a promising 31 without loss on the back of a quickfire not out from the right-handed Anamul Haque and a complementary, unbeaten 11 from the left-handed Tamim Iqbal.

The Windies won the preceding ODI series three-nil. The teams will meet for two Tests – at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingston and Beausejour Cricket Ground in Gros Islet – between 5 and 17 September.

Bangladesh fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain, meanwhile, is eager to see the superb form gathered across this month's ODIs – which brought an impressive 10 wickets – translate to success in the longest format of the international game.

"I would say that my fortune has changed just a bit," said Al-Amin. "I wasn't getting the wickets before this series but now I have bowled better and got the wickets.

"It was always important to plan well, and without that it was impossible to be successful at this level. I will have to remain proactive, and think on my feet."
