No play on second day of first Test
 

Chittagong, Bangladesh -- The second day in the first Test match between Bangladesh and West Indies at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium was called off on Saturday due to heavy overnight rain that left the outfield wet and unfit for play.

The match referee and umpires made the decision after an inspection at 11 am. The groundstaff spent the entire morning and afternoon mopping up. Play will resume 30 minutes earlier than scheduled on Sunday at 9 am (11 pm Saturday Eastern Caribbean Time/10 pm Jamaica Time).

Bangladesh were on 255-4 at the close of day one after winning the toss and batting first, with captain Mushfiqur Rahim unbeaten on 68. Off-spinner Marlon Samuels has been the West Indies most successful bowler with 2-69.
