Bangladesh get first test win over Australia

Bangladesh get first test win over Australia”

Chasing 265 to win, Australia lost five wickets in an eventful morning session, and whatever hopes they had were snuffed out when Shakib bowled Glenn Maxwell with the first delivery after the lunch break.

Shakib is now the No. 1 all-rounder in the ICC Test rankings and he showed exactly why as he spun a web around the Australians after a fine 84 in Bangladesh's first innings.

Resuming on 109-2, Warner batted with calculated aggression, while Smith was content to play second fiddle as they continued the good work they had started on Tuesday evening with some generous assistance from Lady Luck.

Cummins and Nathan Lyon fought bravely after lunch to put on a 29-run partnership before Lyon gloved a Mehedi delivery to Soumya at first slip.

On a pitch that has produced bounce and turn that caused England problems a year ago, Al Hasan and Nathan Lyon have taken full advantage to create chaos for the batsmen with combined figures of 17-257 with their spin. "I think it's a big statement", said Mushfiqur after the historic win over Australia in the first Test at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

It also doubled his feat of smashing a half-century and grabbing 10 wickets in a Test match, and he joined Hadlee as only the second cricketer to achieve the feat a couple of times.

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.

Australia also had Agar to thank for helping it get close to Bangladesh's first innings total of 260 after the regular batsmen struggled against spin. I couldn't believe that we can win today's match. After Tamim's dismissal, skipper Muhfiqur Rahim has taken the responsibility for the hosts as they have extended their lead to 222 runs.

Mushfiqur felt that Bangladesh also matched Australia in terms of aggression.

Taijul then dismissed Peter Handscomb for 15 and Ashton Agar for two while Shakib added the wicket of Matthew Wade (four) to his kitty.

The 26-year-old sustained the blow earlier in the game and it got worsened as the game progressed and eventually went off the field in the 35th over in the third innings of the game.
