Australia on ropes in first Test in Dhaka

Chappell I'm not convinced Wade is our best keeper

Australia are at risk of another subcontinental let-down after handing Bangladesh the ascendancy with a dismal batting performance on day two of the first cricket Test in Dhaka.

Australia were reduced to 144 for 8 after Lunch, when Agar and Cummins got together in a defiant 49-run stand for the ninth wicket.

Bangladesh 1-45 in second innings at stumps on day two, leading Australia by 88 runs.

Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan, who took 12 wickets at the same venue to script Bangladesh's first test win over England a year ago, struck in his second over, sneaking one through the gate to dismiss the rival captain for eight.

Maxwell made a confident 23 before he was lured out of his crease by Shakib, who turned the ball past the outside edge and Mushfiqur Rahim completed the stumping.

Matt Renshaw and Peter Handscomb made up for the loss of Smith with a 69-run partnership before Handscomb was given out lbw off the bowling of Taijul Islam for 33. Glenn Maxwell and Matthew Wade resumed Australia's struggling efforts, however a 90km/h rocket delivery from Mehidy Hasan Miraz saw Wade fall for 5 just minutes after returning to the pitch.

Australia got some much-needed luck in the form of a howler of a dropped catch from Bangladesh's Shafiul Islam after Cummins skied one from Shakib on 11.

The jury found the company was liable for failing to warn the woman about the cancer risks of using talcum products. Scientific studies about this link have provided little to no evidence that the powder could cause ovarian cancer.

But the key man on this day, as on the first day, was Shakib, who for the eighth time in his Test career combined a half-century with a five-wicket haul.

Renshaw survived nearly two sessions, facing 94 balls for his 45 runs while Australia lost five wickets, until he edged to Soumya Sarkar at slip.

Agar was not out on 41 off 97, hitting two fours and one six.

Earlier in the day's play, Bangladesh put in no efforts to hide their plan of unleashing their spin barrel on the Australians.

He became only the fourth bowler to take five-wicket hauls against all nine possible Test opponents.

Renshaw was on 14 when he was adjudged lbw to Mehidy but the southpaw reviewed the decision to prolong his stay after replays suggested the ball would have missed the stumps.

And the latest achievement came a day after he joined forces with Tamim Iqbal to rescue Bangladesh from a top-order collapse with the bat, justifying his status as the world's top-ranked Test allrounder. "No matter in what manner the wicket behaves, unless you can bowl in the right areas it is hard to earn success".
