Kingstown: Torrential overnight and continuous morning rain is threatening the entire second day of the first Test between the West Indies and Bangladesh at the Arnos Vale Stadium in St Vincent on Saturday.

With puddles of water visible on the outfield and no sign of a break in the showers, the umpires have already ruled that there will be no play before lunch. 

An official inspection of the playing conditions is scheduled for 11.30 a.m. local time (1530 GMT).

West Indies closed the first day at 264 for three with opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite on 123 and veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul on one.
