The weather lived up to the original forecast of rain on Sunday, and it is likely to continue into the third and fourth days
Stumps Pakistan 188 for 2 (Babar 71*, Azhar 52, Taijul 2-49) vs Bangladesh
Rain, which got heavier in the afternoon, allowed only thirty minutes of play on the second day of the Dhaka Test. With no respite in sight, play was called off at 3pm.
Rain brought day two to a halt at 1:20pm, exactly 30 minutes after play had begun. It was a day of light to heavy showers, which started around half an hour before the scheduled start of play. At any rate, the second day kicked off after a delay. The first time the umpires announced the possibility of a start to the day’s proceedings was at 11:20am, but five minutes before play was to get underway, rain returned, forcing the players back into the dressing room.
The weather lived up to the original forecast of a downpour on Sunday, and it is likely to continue into the third and fourth days. This is due to the deep depression that caused by the cyclone Jawad on the west-central Bay of Bengal.
