Day three also lost in Chittagong

Bangladesh

Poor drainage at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium continued to hamper the first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies.

Poor drainage at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium continued to hamper the first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies as the third day's play was also abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Day two had suffered the same fate, and the opening match in the two-Test series now appears destined for a draw despite an intriguing first day when Bangladesh advanced to 255 for four.

While the overnight rain had relented by Sunday morning, some water had seeped through gaps in the covers and with little prospect of the resulting wet patches drying the umpires called off play for the day just 90 minutes after it was due to begin.

There was some sunshine, but not even that was going to be enough to dry out the field in the view of the umpires.

Mushfiqur Rahim must therefore wait further to resume his innings on 64, while Naeen Islam is his not out partner.
