Rain Interrupts Bangladesh-Pakistan Test | Eastern Riverina Chronicle

The majority of the game on day two of the second cricket test between Bangladesh and Pakistan has been washed out due to persistent rain. Only 6.2 overs from possible 98 were completed as Pakistan resumed the day at 2-161 and reached 2-188 before the judges called it a day. Captain Babar Azam struck out 71 with Azhar Ali on 52 on stumps. Rain and bad light also interrupted the game on day one, allowing only two sessions. When the match started after the lunch session on Sunday, Babar resumed with a boundary through a fine leg from Khaled Ahmed, showing his intention to score fast runs. Azhar also hit a boundary in the second ball he faced Ebadot Hossain. He then struck two consecutive fours in Ebadot’s next over to reach his 34th Test fifty of 126 balls just before rain forced the postponement. Left-hander Taijul Islam, who did not bowl on day two, remains Bangladesh’s biggest threat, with match figures of 2-49. Pakistan won the first test by eight wickets and leads the two-match series 1-0. Australian Associated Press
