Rain washed out the last day of the Bangladesh-New Zealand second cricket test to spoil what could have been an interesting Friday.

The match and series were probably going to be drawn anyway before rain interfered, but the match was set up for a compelling finish.

Bangladesh’s second-innings fight-back was stuck on the overnight score of 269-3 and a lead of 114. Mominul Haque was stranded on 126 not out, his second century of the series, which earned him the honors of man of the match and series.

Bangladesh planned to declare around lunchtime, tempt the Kiwis with a chance at victory and try to force a New Zealand collapse. But both teams were thwarted by the rain which began overnight, leaving Bangladesh to wait longer for its first test win over the Kiwis.

Bangladesh scored 282 in its first innings and New Zealand 437.

The first of three one-day internationals is on Tuesday at Dhaka.
