Bangladesh lose three wickets in quick succession against Australia

Australia: Shambolic defeat raises serious questions

Australia: Shambolic defeat raises serious questions

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

David Warner earlier helped Australia steady their innings with 112 runs after losing two early wickets in the second innings on Tuesday.

But their departure prompted the loss of five wickets for just 28 runs as Australia's middle order rediscovered its fragility.

Australia needed 21 runs to win but with their intent the Tigers denied Cummins any chance to come to strike again, in the match.

But the visitors lost five wickets in the final hour before lunch, and any remaining hope evaporated when Glenn Maxwell was bowled by left-arm spinner Shakib with the first ball of the second session. He top-scored with 85 in the first innings and claimed 10 wickets in the match.

Pat Cummins, the lone paceman to taste success in the spin-dominated duel, blasted an unbeaten 33 but was left stranded as Australia folded for 244. The second Test will begin from September 4 in Chittagong.

An emboldened Bangladesh have declared themselves ready to consign Australia to a crushing series defeat after claiming an historic victory in the first Test in Dhaka.

It also doubled his feat of smashing a half-century and grabbing 10 wickets in a Test match, and he joined Hadlee as only the second cricketer to achieve the feat a few times.

It's often said that the biggest weapon of an athlete in his mind and Bangladesh proved exactly that. "A great effort by the boys, especially Shakib and Tamim [Iqbal] were outstanding", Mushfiqur said. It was a Test match to remember for Shakib for picking up the man-of-the-match award in his 50th game in the longest format. I thought it was pretty hard to bat in the second innings.

An embarrassed Australia lost to a side ranked No 9 in the world who had only won nine of 100 tests.

Shakib had ended Australian opener Matthew Renshaw's watchful innings in the over before lunch to give Bangladesh the upper hand. In the first innings he scored 71 to rescue Bangladesh from 10 for 3. "We let ourselves down in the first innings and then we did not play well in the second innings".

"I believe that we can chase anything because I think we can bowl them out pretty quickly tomorrow", Agar said.
