Australia 8/13 favourites to beat Bangladesh and square series

  • Matt Renshaw says the inconsistent turn in Dhaka made it one of the most challenging pitches he had batted

The Victorian pushed for the century-sealing single after Warner played one to the leg-side, but a dead-eye Shakib Al Hasan threw down the stumps at the non-striker's end after Warner sent him back, ending Handscomb's superb knock of 82. The application of both men made their stand the biggest not involving Steven Smith by an Australian pair since the 2014 series against Pakistan in the UAE, when Warner and Chris Rogers put on 128 for the opening wicket in Dubai. In a chanceless innings, lasting 166 balls, Rahim hit five boundaries.

The tourists ground out the runs after that reprieve and typically explosive opener Warner had to endure what will surely have been a painful 74-ball wait between boundaries. Batting last on crumbling Asian pitches has been Australia's bane for some time now, as was evident in the first Test of this series. "And towards the end of the day when you're like that and under stress it's about just getting through each ball, taking your time".

Bangladesh resumed on 6-253 but could only add a further 52 runs as Lyon's fine form continued, the off-spinner claiming the key wicket of captain Mushfiqur Rahim (68) as he returned figures of 7-94.

Wade's underwhelming record with the bat since he returned to the Test side late previous year has been a mounting source of concern for the selectors, to the point that they considered dropping him to use Handscomb's part-time glovework in this match.

We are still in the cone of uncertainty at this point so we need to prepare for a possible impact from this unsafe storm. Among the most intense storms on record, it only trails Hurricane Allen in 1980 which had winds of 190 miles per hour.

Warner would reach a landmark hundred, his second in consecutive innings, after his well-publicised slump in Test cricket and in Asia in particular. That's special in any year in Australian cricket.

"He led the way in how we wanted to play in that partnership". "Usually Warner does not bat in this manner and always likes to play shots but today he was totally different zone and batted slowly", felt Nasir.

"I knew Greg Ritchie was in next, and I knew there would be some easy quip I could make to fire him up, so I said, "Yeah well that's okay mate, if you want to go off now we'll get someone out here tough, we'll get a Queenslander out here". After that, the first test match was held from Aug 27, Sun - Aug 31, Thursday which was won by the Bangladesh by 20 runs. He has taken only 66 matches to bring up 20 Test match century. He will always be known as an attacking player.

Australia started the second Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong in promising fashion but the hosts bounced back to ensure the spoils were shared come stumps on day one.
