Bangladesh has won the toss and have elected to bowl

Hello all and welcome to the coverage of the Only Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh.

11:22 am local time: News coming in from the ground is not good as its raining out there in Hamilton and it will not start on time. We will keep you informed as and when we have any news

11:38 am local time: It might take couple of hours to get the game started, provided the rain stays away. Not much that we can do other than... wait!

Gary says "Why do they not start tests at 10:30am like they use too? An extra 90 minutes of play would available if required. If this was applied in the 3rd test against Pakistan no doubt NZ would of won" They could have Gary and hope rains don't play spoil sport in the upcoming series against Australia

Jordan and Bevin almost suggest the same thing, that there had been a steady drizzle which has almost stopped and it's slightly overcast. Thank you guys!

Jeff says "Better still - why did we waste all that great january and early february weather with no international cricket - playing cricket in autumn in NZ is madness" Aren't these questions asked every year Jeff?

Steve asks "The game may go five days if it rains.Has a NZ-Bangladesh Test ever lasted 5 days?" This one surely did and we know why!

12;18 pm local time: The umpires have come down to have a look at the pitch and find that the groundsmen have yet to lift the covers. We can have some news for you about the play timings once the umpires have a look at the pitch

Well there are a lot of comments pouring in about this match. The previous one was affected by rain, similar to what's happening now

12:27 pm local time: Good news is that the game might start by one, that is in about half an hour's time from now
