Bangladesh Premier League fixture between hosts Mohammedan SC and visitors Arambagh at the Bangabandhu National Stadium yesterday was postponed three minutes after the kick-off due to inclement weather.
“The ground was ready for the game to resume, but the weather was not in favour due to lightning, so the match has been postponed,” informed match commissioner Haji Ibrahim Nesar.
Competition manager Zaber Bin Taher Ansari informed that the match would be bodily shifted and is likely to start today from where it stopped.
The two neighbouring sides had locked horns in their second meeting of the season, but the sudden storm forced the players and match officials off the pitch four minutes into the match as the dugouts and billboards were blown away by strong wind. A couple of players were even lucky not to get hurt as they took shelter behind the dugouts.
In the first meeting between the two sides, Arambagh handed struggling Mohammedan SC a 4-1 defeat, their first-ever victory over the Black and Whites in 17 meetings of the professional football league.
