    Third day's play called off due to rain

    Overnight rain ruined any prospects of cricket on the third day in Chittagong.

    Chittagong: The first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies at Chittagong was affected by the weather again as early drizzle and a damp outfield forced the cancellation of the third day.

    No play was possible on Saturday due to a damp outfield. The match referee and umpires made the decision after an inspection at 1015 local time. Play will resume 30 minutes earlier than scheduled on Monday at 0900.

    On day one, Tamim and Mushfiqur Rahim hit fine fifties as the Bangladesh batsmen applied themselves to finish day one of the first Test match at 255/4.

    Mushfiqur Rahim and Naeem Islam are on the crease. Wicket-keeper Rahim is unbeaten on 68 and Iskam is not out on 8.

    The West Indies struggled for success on a first-day track which had little for fast bowlers and spinners, taking just one wicket in the opening session, two in the second and one in the third and last.
