Christchurch - The third day of the second and final Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh was abandoned Sunday after persistent rain in Christchurch.

New Zealand are 260 for seven in their first innings, 29 runs behind Bangladesh's 289.

Fine weather is forecast for the remaining two days and play will start 30 minutes early at 10.30am on Monday.
