Rain mars third day

The third day of the first four-day match between the Bangladesh High Performance (HP) team and their Sri Lankan counterparts was marred by rain at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna yesterday.

Although the hosts dominated the first two days, the match will most likely end in a draw as only 49 overs could be played yesterday due to rain.
