Bangladesh v Pakistan

Watch: Shakib Al Hasan takes epic water slide on outfield covers during lengthy Bangladesh-Pakistan rain delay

Watch: With rain affecting the second Test between Bangladesh and Pakistan in Dhaka, the cricketers found ways to entertain themselves, and leading the pack was Shakib Al Hasan.

With only 6.2 overs of play possible on day two of the second Test match in Dhaka on Sunday, the cricketers were left confined to the dressing room. While the Pakistan players spent their time playing an intra-team game of cricket in the dressing room, Shakib Al Hasan could not control his excitement as he summoned his inner child. The Bangladesh all-rounder ran towards the wet covers spread on the field in full pace, before sliding on the sheets through a pool of water.

A total of 63.2 overs have been bowled in three days of the Test match, with Pakistan notching up 188-2. Day three of the game was abandoned on Monday without a single ball being bowled. A deep depression due to Cyclone Jawad has caused heavy rain in Bangladesh and the eastern parts of India, and the likelihood of play seems unlikely on Tuesday as well.
