SAVAR – West Indies’ preparations for the opening Test against Bangladesh suffered a snag yesterday when their three-day tour match was reduced to two days because of an impaired outfield  at the BKSP ground.

The inclement weather for the last week has left the ground unfit  for play and officials were forced  to cut the opening day.
