Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Overnight rain ruined any prospects of cricket on the third day as well in Chittagong, and the umpires abandoned the day's play around 90 minutes after the scheduled start. The entire ground was under covers in the morning and though the rain had relented, enough water had seeped through to leave wet patches around the field. Though the sun did break out, it wasn't hot and bright enough, nor was there enough wind, to ensure the ground dried up in time to get some play in. Played was called off on day two under overcast skies; today, there was some sunlight. Whether it's undermined by more rain remains to be seen.
