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.
