Bangladesh talisman Shakib backs words with action in Dhaka

Pat Cummins has produced a lethal spell of fast bowling in the first Test against Bangladesh

Shakib Al Hasan ended Australian opener Matthew Renshaw's watchful innings in the over before lunch yesterday to give Bangladesh the upper hand on day two of the series-opening test.

Australia had resumed on 109-2, needing another 156 runs for victory, but all eight wickets to fall on day four were claimed by spinners.

Finally there was some Australian resistance as Agar and Cummins reduced their deficit to 67 at tea, however the break did them no good as Shakib removed the former - via an inside edge and pad - nine balls after the restart.

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. Still, we knew the pitch was helping the spinners and apart from the two batsmen [overnight batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner] they didn't have the experience to survive.

And with his 5-85 in the second innings on Wednesday, he became the first cricketer to mark his 50th Test by grabbing 10 wickets along with a half-century in one of the innings.

"The Australian team were on the back foot, trying not to play an over".

Welcoming Steve Smith to the crease, Warner then turned the tide on the Bangladeshis by hitting 11 fours and 1 six to drive Australia towards their target of 265.

"With Jackson Bird in the squad we are comfortable with our fast-bowling options for the second Test and have elected to add an additional spinner given the conditions we are likely to face in Chittagong", cricket.com.au quoted Hohns, as saying.

"We had that confidence and the belief came from the last two to three years". The veteran all-rounder also played a useful knock of 84 in Bangladesh's first innings.

Smith said failing to pile up runs in the first innings had made their job tougher.

According to Bangladesh Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim, it is a huge achievement for the Tigers and the win against Australia is a big statement for the cricketing world.

Less than 24 hours after Shai Hope's second century of the match secured a series-leveling victory for West Indies against England at Leeds, the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka was the venue of another upset.

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.
