West Indies tour of Bangladesh, Only T20I: Bangladesh v West Indies at Dhaka, Oct 11, 2011
Bangladesh won by 3 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)
11 October 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

4.30 pm We're ready to begin. Bangladesh are wearing a new kit - a lighter green with red sleeves. West Indies sport too many colours to describe.

Lendl Simmons and Adrian Barath to open for West Indies. Left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak with the new ball for Bangladesh. Surprise, surprise.

Toss, 4.30 pm Mushfiqur Rahim's won his first toss as full-time captain and Bangladesh will bowl.

Bangladesh have left out Elias Sunny, Nazmul Hossain and vice-captain Mahmudullah, who is down with viral fever. Of the 15 players in their squad, West Indies have left out Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo and Kieron Pollard. I think Pollard is missing out because he didn't play the domestic T20 competition for Trinidad & Tobago, which makes him ineligible for West Indies selection in this format. Carlos Brathwaite is making his debut.

4.15 pm Welcome to ESPNcricinfo's ball-by-ball coverage of West Indies' tour of Bangladesh, the first of several tours beginning in the next few days. The series, which is Mushfiqur Rahim's first as Bangladesh captain, begins with a Twenty20 in Mirpur. Here's Dustin Silgardo's preview of the game. The toss is at 4.30 pm.
