Bangladesh 255 for 4 (Mushfiqur 64*, Tamim 52, Raqibul 41) v West Indies
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Overnight and early morning rain, and a damp outfield under overcast conditions, ensured there was no play on the second day of the first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies in Chittagong. Rain had been forecast for the first two days of the Test; though it stayed away on the first day on which Bangladesh reached 255 for 4, it arrived to play spoilsport on the second. There were several wet patches around the field and the overcast weather didn't give the umpires much hope that the ground would dry quickly. They decided to abandon the day's play after an inspection at 11.15am local time. Play is scheduled to start half-an-hour early on day three, at 9am local time.

In this day and age there should be minimum standards set by ICC for grounds that can be called fit for test matches or for that matter any matches played under their jurisdiction. I bet there is more unhealthy, unhygienic things and security related issues going on that should be addressed as well. Damn corruption is infested everywhere. What a shame.

This is really shame for us !! We express of our blame to BCM who are guilty for their irresponsibly attitude. ICC should take action against BCB for their poor ground facility.

Shame BCB! Shame Shame!! From a newspaper report I got to know that drainage system of ZACS is like from the ancient times (I bet the Colosseum in the Roman Empire had better drainage system than that of ZACS!)

I hope, BCB will not arrange any more test games in ZACS...Our country has stadiums in every division and there are more than five international venue but BCB just arrenge the games in Zacs and Mirpur....What the heck with sylhet,Rajshahi,Khulna,Bogra,Barishal,Fotulla?

Comin frm a west indian, this is absolutely poor, totally shambolic, and abmisally inconceivable as to why this test would be scheduled in a venue unfit for world cricket. i really respect banbladesh cricket with the likes of tamim, n shakib comin to global renown, but the actions of the clueless n visionless board have severely retarded progress, not to dissimlar 2 the wicb.

what a shame!! play has been called of without a drop of rain in the day. I'm sorry to say, you should not arrange a test in a ground which has no drainage system at all. Feel sorry for the tigers, they were in a great position to start the day. BCB should go for other venues in the country. There are almost 8 grounds in the country with international facilities, why ZACS?
