Bangladesh 255-4 (Mushfiqur Rahim 68no) v West Indies
First Test, Chittagong, day two
| | Day Two

No play was possible on day three of the opening Test between Bangladesh and the West Indies in Chittagong after rain left the outfield unplayable.

The two teams will attempt to begin the fourth day earlier than originally planned with Bangladesh handily placed on 255 for four in their first innings.

The second day was also completely lost meaning the match is now likely to end as a draw.

Half-centuries on the opening day for Mushfiqur Rahim (68 not out) and Tamim Iqbal (52) gave them a solid start while Marlon Samuels took two wickets.
