Muthu: India face opening dilemma

Heavy monsoon rain in the first half of the day in Fatullah meant no play was possible on the second day of the Test.

A quick 150 from Shikhar Dhawan on the first day, complemented by M Vijay's 89, seemed to have made up lost time on day one, but a loss of a whole day on a slow and low pitch was a severe blow to chances of a result.

With only 56 overs of play possible on the first day and the forecast for the remaining three days not looking decidedly better, the one-off Test seemed headed for a draw. Which should not come as a surprise: there is a reason this is the first time a Test is being played in June in Bangladesh. June is when the monsoon hits the country with all its intensity.

If the Test is drawn India, placed currently at No. 3, will slip to No. 4 in the ICC Test rankings. While a draw will give take Bangladesh to 41.21 rating points from 39, it won't bring about a change in their ninth rank, ahead of only Zimbabwe.
