Chittagong - Play began after a rain delay of more than three hours on the third day of the second Test between Bangladesh and Australia in Chittagong on Wednesday.

Heavy showers washed out the entire morning session, limiting the third day's play to a maximum 67 overs at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. 

Australia resumed at 225 for 2 with David Warner on 88 and Peter Handscomb on 69 at the crease after an unbroken century stand. 

The visitors trailed by 80 runs after the home team made 305 in their first innings. 

Bangladesh lead the two-match series 1-0 after winning the first Test in Dhaka by 20 runs. The win was Bangladesh's first against Australia in the longest format of the game.
