Overnight rain and a persistent drizzle throughout the day washed out the last day’s play in the second Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand, in Mirpur. The 0-0 result against New Zealand means Bangladesh have now registered their 2nd successive drawn series after finishing 1-1 against Zimbabwe in April this year. A drawn series against a team ranked higher than them in the Test rankings, is a fine result for the home side.
The covers came on and off twice in Mirpur in the morning session. The rain never progressed into a downpour, but it was enough to bring everything to a standstill.
Mominul Haque, with 376 runs and Sohag Gazi, with eight wickets, take the top positions in the batting and bowling lists for the series respectively.
The two teams will now play a three-match ODI series, starting on October 29.
