Heavy overnight rain and early morning showers further delayed the start of the second and final Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand on the third day here on Monday.

The first two days were washed out due to rain and bad weather.

The umpires were due to inspect the grounds at 11.00am local time (500 GMT).

"There has been persistent overnight and early morning rain and since the pitch and square were fully covered, the two umpires will inspect the conditions and then decide when to start the match," said an official.

New Zealand lead the two-match series 1-0. They won the first Test at Chittagong by three wickets.
