News Americas, CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh, Mon. Oct. 24, 2011: A second day of play in the West Indies versus Bangladesh test match was called off Sunday because of rain.

Play was called off for a second successive day without a ball being bowled in the first Test match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdury Stadium on Sunday.

Bangladesh remains at 255 for 4 in their first innings at stumps on the opening day on Friday after winning the toss, with skipper Mushfiqur Rahim unbeaten on 68 and Naeem Islam on eight not out. Off-spinner Marlon Samuels has been the West Indies most successful bowler with 2-69.

Rain late Saturday night and into early Sunday morning affected the outfield, already water-logged after Saturday’s showers.

Play is slated to resume today, Monday Oct. 24th at 9 a.m. (11 pm Sunday Eastern Caribbean Time/10 pm Jamaica Time).

The second and final Test will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Saturday, October 29th.
