West Indies-Afghanistan ODI rained out

Jun 14, 2017 - 11:44 PM The third one-day international between West Indies and Afghanistan has been washed out by persistent rain in Saint Lucia on Wednesday.

The weather denied the tourists a potential series victory and the hosts key rankings points.

Afghanistan won the opening the match of the series by 63 runs on the back of a stunning haul of 7-18 from 18-year-old leg-spinner Rashid Khan, the fourth-best bowling figures of all time in the 50-over format.

West Indies, desperate to move up the rankings from ninth to avoid having to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, hit back to take a four-wicket victory in the second match.

After a two-hour delay on Wednesday, Afghanistan won the toss for the decisive third match and elected to bat but the rain returned before a single delivery could be bowled.

The series was drawn 1-1.
