Persistent rain washed out the second day here of the second and final Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand.

With the first day's play also washed out and more rain forecast Monday, it means Bangladesh are running out of time in their bid to square the two-Test series.

Sunday's incessant rain spoiled any chances of removing the pitch covers at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium and calling the toss. Showers turned heavy, leaving the ground too soggy.

"If it gets clear we have an early start on Monday," an official said.

New Zealand won the first Test by three wickets at Chittagong, chasing down a daunting 317-run target -- their highest run pursuit in away Tests -- to beat a home team who had dominated the first four days of the Test.

The tourists also won the preceding three-match one-day series 2-1.
