Bangladesh And New Zealand Lose First Day To Rain

The first day's play in the second and final Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand has been washed out by steady rain over the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Saturday.

Play was scheduled to start at 0300 GMT on Sunday with a 30 minute extension added to the remaining four days of the test to help make up for some of the lost time, a Bangladesh Cricket Board official told reporters.

New Zealand lead the two-match series 1-0 after securing a three-wicket victory in the opening match in Chittagong on Tuesday.
