Dhaka, 25 October
The second Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand ended in a draw today after rain washed out the fifth and final day’s play at Dhaka’s Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
The result ensured the two teams shared the spoils in the series after the first Test in Chittagong also ended in a draw. Match officials called off play at 2:08 pm local time (0808 GMT) after overnight showers and continuous drizzle made the ground unplayable.
Bangladesh were 269-3 overnight in the second innings, leading New Zealand by 114 runs.
Left-handed middle-order batsman Mominul Haque remained unbeaten on 126 alongside former captain Shakib Al Hasan on 32 not out. Bangladesh were under pressure on the fourth day, trailing New Zealand by 155 runs in the first innings before Mominul and Tamim Iqbal wiped out the deficit and put Bangladesh in front, adding 157 runs for the third wicket.
