The second Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh is still yet to begin with the opening two days washed out due to inclement weather at Basin Reserve in Wellington. The forecast for Sunday does not look any bright with scattered showers expected throughout the third day. The weather may clear out only by Monday afternoon.

New Zealand batting coach Craig McMillan confident that a result is still possible despite rain preventing action on the first two days. “There’s still plenty of time. Three days is a long time and we’ve seen a lot of test matches finish in that period,” McMillan told reporters on Saturday. (ALSO READ: Rain washes away second straight day of Wellington Test)

“Conditions will be challenging at different times for the batsmen so that can fast track things as well.

“All three results are still possible, so we have to make sure when we turn up we’re switched on and ready to go whenever that might happen.”

On Saturday, the weather had cleared, and fans were eager to see play kickoff at least by afternoon. However, light drizzle hampered the work of the groundstaff and despite the covers being removed and both teams going through their warm-ups, the umpires finally called off play.

Meanwhile, when the covers were removed, a lush green strip was revealed and McMillan said that whichever team won the toss would bowl first. “Generally, when you play in Wellington, two days out the pitch is very green but that complexion changes,” McMillan said.

“This pitch is as green as I’ve seen it for a number of years, and two days under cover with the rain means it’s going to be softer and a bit spicier than what we’ve seen in previous years. It’s going to be a real challenge for both sides but that brings an air of excitement.”

New Zealand lead the three-match series 1-0. The third Test will get underway on March 16 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
