ICC World Cup, 1999 / Commentary

ICC World Cup - 12th match, Group B

Bangladesh v West Indies

West Indies won by 7 wickets (with 21 balls remaining)

it's quite rainy in Dublin today. Rain will be on and off all day. Play may possible, then again it may not, we'll just have to wait and see. And as I speak, it's stopped raining again....... I just can't believe it's rainy in Ireland in May it's 5 minutes before the scheduled start in play, it's overcast, but the clouds aren't too grey. They're bringing the covers off and the umpires will have an inspection soon after. Match State: Match start delayed due to morning rain it's just been announced that the match will get underway (pending no further rain) at 11:15 local time (1015 GMT) with the lunch break reduced to 30 minutes, and the close of play extended by 15 minutes Match State: Match start delayed to 1015 GMT by morning rain and sigh, the raining is again sprinkling down and the covers are back on. We will have to wait and see if this affects the 1015 GMT start and looky there, the sun is out again. What a performance the Irish are turning on for us today. Bangladesh have won the toss and have elected (for reasons only known to them) to bat first Lara must be having a big chuckle to himself, because there's no doubt he would've bowled if he won the toss Match State: Match due to start at 1030 GMT West Indies squad is resting Ambrose, and sadly no appearance for the Powell the pyrotechnic and of course the best news in terms of the toss is that it should make for a quick match. No offence to the Banglas, but hell let's be realistic. Walsh to Shahriar to start us off
