Incessant rain has washed out play on the third day in the second and last Test between Bangladesh and South Africa.
The downpour had abated before the lunch break and umpires Richard Kettleborough and Paul Reiffel had declared resumption of play after tea at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.
As the teams were warming up under the cloudy sky, heavy rain within 20 minutes put paid to any chance of resuming play for the second successive day.
The umpires called it off at 3:05pm.
The start was scheduled for 9:30am but was delayed for wet outfields due to morning drizzle and overnight rain on Saturday.
The entire second day had washed away on Friday due to showers under influence of cyclone ‘Komen’.
Bangladesh were 246 for 8 in their first innings after opting to bat first at the end of the first day’s play at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.
The hosts are looking to Nasir Hossain, who is unbeaten on 13, to take them to a decent total.
The weather had also played spoilsport in the drawn first Test in Chittagong. Only 221 overs were bowled as rain curtailed play on the second and third days before washing out the last two days.
