The lunch break was taken 10 minutes earlier than scheduled meaning the game started at 12noon.



With sun breaking out, the third day's game of the second cricket Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand was resumed on Friday after the lunch break.

The lunch break was taken 10 minutes earlier than scheduled meaning the game started at 12noon.

A total of 74 overs play is set for Friday instead of regular 90 overs.

Due to persistent rain, the entire second day was washed out with New Zealand at 55-5.

A total of 15 wickets fell on day one after which Bangladesh took the control of the Test, leading New Zealand by 117 runs at this moment.

Bangladesh were bundled out for 172 runs after its captain Najmul Hossain Shanto won the toss and opted to bat first, with Mushfiqur Rahim top-scoring 35. He however became the first Bangladeshi batter to be dismissed for handling the ball.

Bangladesh spinners then helped the side hit back strongly, ripping through New Zealand half of the batting line up in a rage turner that also was slow and low and has uneven bounce.

Offspinner Mehidy Hasan led the attack with 3-17 and left-arm spinner Taijul Islam, fresh from his 10-184 in the first test, took 2-29.

Bangladesh leads the series 1-0, following its 150-run victory in the first Test.
