Rain washes out day one at the Basin

Video Highlights

Day one of the second Test between the BLACKCAPS and Bangladesh has been washed out at the Basin Reserve.

A bleak morning and persistent rain falling meant the covers stayed over the block all day with play finally called off by the umpires just after 3pm.

The players will return tomorrow for day two with a slightly earlier start time of 10:30am.

Rain, rain go away

Video Highlights

It was another frustrating day for players, fans and officials at the Basin Reserve as breaks in the weather tempted the prospect of play on day two of the second Test.

Unfortunately, as both sides warmed up on the field and the umpires looked ready to set a start time at around 4 o'clock, more afternoon showers washed away any hope of the match getting underway.

With just three days remaining, play is scheduled to start at 10:30 tomorrow.
