Mirpur, Aug 1: Heavy rain triggered by cyclone Komen washed away the third day’s play in the Bangladesh-South Africa Test match at the Sher-e-Bangla tiol Cricket Stadium here on Saturday.
It was the second consecutive day that not a single ball was bowled in the game, with Bangladesh at 246 for 8 after electing to bat.
After start-stop showers prevented play in the morning session, the umpires carried out an inspection at 1.30 pm, deciding to start the match at 2.15 pm. But the rain resumed soon after, forcing the umpires to call off play for the day.
Only 88.1 overs have been played in the Test match so far. IANS
