Bangladesh v South Africa, 2nd Test, Mirpur

Day 3 washed out

Match officials called of play for day 3 of the 2nd Test match between Bangladesh and South Africa due to unremitting rain at Mirpur stadium.

Earlier, seasonal downpour from early morning delayed the start of the third day of the final Test of this series.

Inclement weather due to cyclone ‘Komen’ washed out the second day without a ball being bowled.

An absorbing day of cricket on July 30 saw Bangladesh enjoy a descent start but suffer a disastrous ending to reach 246 for 8 in 88.1 overs.

Several Bangladeshi batters got out after good starts, while Mushfiqur Rahim became the first skipper for his side to score a fifty against South Africa in Test matches.

Dale Steyn became the 13th bowler to take 400 Test wickets but South Africa's part-time spinners enjoyed most of the success on a gripping day of grind on both sides.

Unfortunately for cricket fans, the weather forecast does not look promising, with thundershowers later in the day according to AccuWeather.com.
