Bangladesh vs Australia: Lyon and Warner Keep Visitors in the Hunt

Match Report-3

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

Australia entered the fourth day needing 156 runs with eight wickets in hand.

Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan, who took 12 wickets at the same venue to inspire Bangladesh's first test win over England past year, struck in his second over, sneaking one through the gate to dismiss Smith for eight. David Warner and Steve Smith looked in great touch and they looked like sealing the game on the fourth day itself.

Bangladesh appeared on course for a bigger second innings total but off-spinner Nathan Lyon claimed 6-82 to help Australia restrict the rivals to 221 all out on the third day of the game in Dhaka.

The 30-year-old was of the opinion that the Australians have realised that the Bangladeshi players are also aggressive and revealed that there were some fiery words between the sides, reflecting the confidence of the Bangladesh team.

The tourists resumed on 3/18 in reply to Bangladesh's 260, and they suffered an early blow when Steve Smith (8) was bowled charging down the pitch by Mehidy Hasan Miraz.

With this result Bangladesh have now taken a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.




Australia face a monumental battle to avoid an embarrassing defeat to Bangladesh which would leave them at risk of falling to their lowest ever Test ranking.

"At home, we believe we can beat any side", Shakib, who claimed the man-of-the-match trophy in his 50th test, told reporters.

Cummins belted offspinner Mehedy Hasan for two sixes in one over to reduce the deficit but it was all over when Taijul Islam trapped Josh Hazlewood lbw for a duck.

Hazlewood's contribution to the Bangladesh tour may not be over yet, despite the left side strain that team physiotherapist David Beakley said would require "several weeks of rehabilitation".

On a turning track where their frontline batsmen have struggled against Bangladesh's three-pronged spin attack, Peter Handscomb (15), Matthew Wade (4) and Ashton Agar (2) all fell in quick succession prior to lunch. "It's disappointing. I think we probably let ourselves down in the first innings with the bat", Smith said.

Tamim led the batting charge in his 155-ball innings but his dismissal off fast bowler Pat Cummins triggered a Bangladesh collapse.
