Rhodes - Bangladesh frustrated by weather delays
Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes is feeling frustrated after rain washed out day two of the second Test against New Zealand.
The adverse weather conditions had already meant that no play was possible on the opening day in Wellington and that proved to be the case once again on Saturday, with Rhodes admitting the waiting around is leaving everyone frustrated.
The Englishman told reporters: "I have been there [in the venue] on the early morning of both days and tried to keep players back in the hotel to keep them fresh and relaxed, and then coming here at some point of time so that means there is not so much hanging around."
"I think we are ok, we are in a good spot and we did a little bit of practice today. So I think the preparation is also going quite well."
Bangladesh lost the first match of the three-Test series by an innings and 52 runs last week and the tourists need to win this contest to have any chance of winning the series.
Rhodes is certainly keen to see his side take to the field on Sunday but is pessimistic about their chances of getting a full day’s play.
He added: "Let’s see how the weather remains tomorrow because I am not sure about the forecast, but I think there is some rain around again."
