BAN v PAK: Babar, Azhar stand firm in 6.2 overs bowled on day two

The majority of play on day two of the second Test between Bangladesh and Pakistan was washed out due to persistent rain on Sunday.

Scorecard and ball-by-ball commentary

Just 6.2 overs from a possible 98 were possible as Pakistan resumed the day on 161 for 2 and reached 188 for 2 before the umpires called it a day. Skipper Babar Azam was batting on 71 with Azhar Ali on 52 at stumps.

Rain and bad light also interrupted the game on day one, allowing just two sessions. As the game started after the lunch session on Sunday, Babar resumed with a boundary through fine leg off pacer Khaled Ahmed, showing his intention to score quick runs.

Azhar also hit a boundary in the second ball he faced off pacer Ebadot Hossain.

He then struck two consecutive fours in Ebadotโ€™s next over to reach his 34th Test fifty off 126 balls just before rain forced the postponement.

Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam, who didnโ€™t bowl on day two, remains Bangladeshโ€™s biggest threat with match figures of 2 for 49.

Pakistan won the first Test by eight wickets and leads the two-match series 1-0.
