Shakib brilliance puts Bangladesh in box seat v Australia

Shakib Al Hasan picked a five wicket haul

Warner instantly reviewed Aleem Dar's decision but replays confirmed it was hitting middle and leg.

Only one of the Australian wicket fell to a run out in first innings. While it was a seesaw battle on the field with respect to runs and wickets, amid the heat, there was a verbal dingdong between the players of both teams.

Taijul Islam's 3-60 and Mehedi Hasan's 2-80 helped Bangladesh a lot to make the apparently hard match easy for the Tigers.

Bangladesh then finished the day 45-1, increasing their advantage as they look to record a first win against Australia in six attempts.

"I'm sure our batters will all learn from our first innings and we'll bat better in the second innings, so we're a good chance".

"It was a great Test match".

Steve Smith, who survived a tight stumping decision from his first ball on day three and had twice been dropped, finally ran out of lives a short time later.

At this stage there's no reason to panic about any of them - Starc and Pattinson also appear on track - but part of the reason Australia feel so confident they can blaze down England's door is the super form of Cummins.

O'Keefe was captain Steve Smith's go-to man in India earlier this year, and although Nathan Lyon and Agar have bowled superbly - Australia may have felt they missed a spinner that can simply be left alone to dry up runs at one end. "The partnership between Tamim and Shakib set the game for them".

Taijul Islam got Peter Handscomb (15), forcing him to edge to slip where Soumya Sarkar made a tough catch possible in his second attempt.

Glenn Maxwell was the final obstacle and Shakib completed his five-wicket performance, disturbing the batsman's wicket with a delivery that kept low and spun sharply in the first ball after lunch.

Bangladesh beat Australia by 20 runs in their first ever Test cricket victory in a thrilling opening game in Dhaka on Wednesday. "I thought we fought back really nicely after that thought we let ourselves down a bit in the first innings with the bat".

Hazlewood's injury is a fresh concern for Australia who are also waiting for quicks Mitchell Starc (foot) and James Pattinson (back) to recover ahead of the Ashes series, which begins on November 23.
