New Zealand tour of Bangladesh, 2008/09 / Commentary

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

Toss: Bangladesh won the toss and they are fielding. Elliot is the only replacement in the New Zealand team for Oram. Bangladesh replace Naeem Islam and in comes Mahbubul Alam.

Day 4: Good morning and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage on day 4. The good news is that the weather looks good and the sun is shining brightly.The outfield is still wet, the umpires will be looking at 09:00 local time and play may get underway at 10:00 local time.

Stumps 3rd day: The covers are off and they are working on the outfield ... super soppers are working and they are rolling the pitch but the umpires decided it will take too long for the drying out process today and so it's another abandonment. Do join us again tomorrow at 9.00am ... until then it is bye from all of us here at Cricinfo.

11.15am The two umpires inspected the ground at 11.00am and ordered removal of the covers, but the ground conditions are still not suitable so there will be another inspection at 2.00pm.

10.30am: The pitch has been covered again as it started to drizzle. The umpires, curator and the New Zealand manager had a look at the ground but not an official inspection.

9:05am There is lot of water on the covers and outfield is very soggy. If there is no rain in next few hours we might have an start but that is a distant possibility. The umpires are expected to have an inspection at 11.00am.

Day 3: Good morning and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage on day 3. It has stopped raining but the covers are still on. Overcast conditions at the moment.

Stumps - 2nd day The umpires have decided to pack in for the day as the rain continues to fall. It's another early start tomorrow at 9.00am, do join us again, until then this is Binoy George along with Bill Andersson and Sohel Awrangzeb signing off.

11.00am More bad news as it continues to rain and the forecast is for more rain. The chances of any play today looks increasingly bleak.

9.00am Play was expected to start half-an-hour early but the weather continues to spoil things. It has been raining since yesterday afternoon, gusty wind accompanied. It is still dark and raining, since the ground is specially made for drainage that looks fine, but the covers flooded with water. Players are inside.There may be an inspection at 11.00am.

Day 2: No play was possible yesterday due to persistent rain and the forecast for today doesn't look good either.

Stumps - 2nd day It is official now, play has been abandoned for the day. It is an early start tomorrow. Thanks to Bill Andersson and Sohel Awrangzeb for all the updates. Do join us tomorrow for live coverage at 9.00am until then this is Binoy George signing off.

12.55pm We have some unofficial news, there might not be any play today, it looks very bleak, we will keep you posted if there is any play today.

12.30pm The drizzle continues! It is the effect of depression in the Bay of Bengal. It does not look good for tomorrow, things may improve on Monday.

11.45am The players are having lunch at the moment. The ground is fine but the drizzle is preventing the start. An inspection is scheduled at 12:30 local time if the drizzle stops.

Lunch No play before lunch, it is still raining. The two umpires Daryl Harper of Australia and Asoka de Silva of Sri Lanka were due to have the first inspection before lunch but it could not take place due to non-stop rain.

9.25am The covers are on as it is raining and the weather looks gloomy. There will be an inspection at 11:00 local time but that is if the rain stops.

Ashraful: "Pressure is always there. Team-wise we have done well, both in the one-dayers and the Test, so we must keep the good work and put up our best effort."

Vettori: "Oram is probably our most important player because of the role he offers, being our third seamer and one of our best batsmen, so when he is out it makes it more difficult."

Oram has a back injury and he will be replaced by Grant Elliot, the allrounder who made his debut against England in Napier earlier this year. Coincidentally, he replaced Oram in that Test too.

9.10am There is some bad news, it is raining at Dhaka at the moment and the news that is coming in is that it is unlikely there will be any play before lunch and the weather forecast isn't good for the whole Test.

After an absorbing first Test, the teams have moved to Dhaka for the second Test. Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage.
