The 4th and final day of the 2nd unofficial Test between the Bangladesh Emerging team (Ban-E) and the Sri Lanka Emerging team (SL-E) at Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium, Cox’s Bazar was completely washed out as the match ended as a draw.
At stumps on day 03, Ban-E were 208-3, backed by a massive 187 runs partnership by skipper Nazmul Hossain Shanto and all-rounder Afif Hossain who scored 88 and 100 respectively.
The first day of the contest was completely ruined by rain and only 66 overs were bowled during the next two days. Persistent rain since the morning forced umpires to take the decision to call off the match in the afternoon.
The first unofficial Test of the tour also concluded as a draw after a few showers hindered play and series will end as 0-0. SL-E triumphed 2-1 in the limited overs leg of the tour.
Sri Lanka Emerging team will return home on 7th September, ending their 23-day long tour of Bangladesh.
