Bangladesh spinners thwart Australia on day one

28 August 2017

Both players have regularly appeared in limited overs matches against Australia, and Shakib has played in the Big Bash League, however the passing Australian fan could understandably have been relatively unfamiliar with the pair.

Shakib and Tamim combined for 155 runs in a fourth wicket stand before Glenn Maxwell broke through to dismiss the latter.

Despite the relatively slow track at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, which was also marking its own landmark of hosting 150 global matches, Australians pacers were able to push the Bangladesh batsmen to the ropes through sheer pace.

It took just five balls for him to strike, squaring up Soumya Sarker with a well-pitched delivery which was caught by Peter Handscomb at gully.

"It's not ideal losing three wickets".

Cummins then had Imrul Kayes and Sabbir Rahman caught behind in quick succession to leave Bangladesh reeling at 3-10.

"They've got some really good spinners and they've got some really good batsmen", Khawaja said. They helped Bangladesh reach some sort of comfort zone from a position of despair.

Tamim, on the other hand, looked to be satisfied playing the second fiddle.

"They're going to have to work hard, bat well, bat long partnerships".

Lyon then went on to claim his 250th wicket in Test cricket when he trapped Taijul Islam lbw for four runs.

Warner was given lbw to Hasan when he was on 8, but it was overturned when replays showed the Australian opener had got a hefty edge onto his pad.

Bangladesh, formerly a laughing stock of the cricketing world have made inroads over the last 12 months. Nafees, who was part of the commentary team in the opening Test match, said this could be the beginning of a new dawn for Bangladesh as they showed how to handle pressure without losing their goal. Shakib struck 11 fours in his 113-ball innings.

Which netted him the highly-prized wicket of Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara, and set him on a path to the very top echelon of Test bowlers of all affiliation and persuasion over the next half a dozen years.

Herath has claimed nearly 70 per cent of his wickets on home tracks in Sri Lanka while Ashwin was proved even more dominant in familiar climes with greater than 71 per cent of his victims falling on Indian soil.

They may be closer to the big league than ever before, but Bangladesh certainly are showing that they can not be treated as mere pushovers anymore. In 2011, the Future Tours Programme had Australia listed to play two Tests in Bangladesh; instead, that tour was limited to three ODIs and no Tests.
