Rain Interrupts Day Two

 

Incessant rain fall and soggy outfield forced play to be called off on the second day of the only Test at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah. 


After Shikhar Dhawan (150*) and Murali Vijay (89*) took India to stumps, on day one, with an unbroken 239-run opening stand on a rain affected first day, heavy showers didn’t allow play to resume on the second day in Bangladesh.


Umpires ruled out possibility of play for the day later in the afternoon after assessing the conditions. 

 

Shikhar Dhawan (150*) and Murali Vijay (89*) took India to stumps with an unbroken 239-run opening stand on a rain affected first day of the one-off Test in Bangladesh. With his third Test century, the left-handed batsman shaped India’s first innings at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah after Test captain Virat Kohli elected to bat under overcast conditions in Bangladesh. 


Dominating the proceedings he had taken India past the three-figure mark with a composed Vijay before rain forced a slightly early end to the first session. The relentless showers continued through the afternoon washing out the second session but with the rain letting up, play could eventually resume later for the final session of the day. 

 

While the hosts came into the game with an attack led by two seamers and three spinners in addition to the part-time spin options, India went in with five bowlers – three seamers and two specialist spinners as the visitors’ looked to dominate the only Test.
