Oz struggle to keep up with Bangla in 1st test

Tamim Iqbal scored 71 runs in the opening day

Matt Renshaw and Australia skipper Steve Smith survived the last two overs of the day and accumulated an unbeaten four-run partnership before stumps was called.

Speaking after play, Lyon said he he hadn't seen the Khawaja run out, but while he acknowledged that it was not ideal, the off-spinner insisted Australia remained well and truly in the hunt.

While Tamim Iqbal made 71 runs, Shakib hit 84 before falling to Lyon. "If our guys get into the mind-set that we went well in India, so we should be able to handle Bangladesh, then they will be in big trouble", Jones said about Australia's performance in Asia.

Young spinner Mehidy Hasan has been a revelation, while wicket keeper and captain Mushfiqur Rahim along with veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan have kept things in check for the Tigers.

"I'll tell you here right now, I'm never taking over Shane Warne", Lyon said. Shakib was then denied his century when he failed to deal with extra bounce from Lyon, gifting a straightforward catch to Smith at slip, with Mushfiqur and Nasir Hossain guiding the hosts to 5-190 at tea.

Australia's Pat Cummins was among the wicket takers against Bangladesh on day one. Nafees, who was part of the commentary team in the opening Test match, said this could be the beginning of a new dawn for Bangladesh as they showed how to handle pressure without losing their goal. The selectors will have a tough decision to make between Taskin Ahmed and Shafiul Islam, but Shafiul might just get the nod.

In the next point, Okuhara again hit the shuttle way behind the baseline to concede the point as Saina then trailed by 6-8. Saina, however, kept breathing down Okuhara's neck, making it 15-15 when the Japanese found the net and also hit long.

QU Poll: Voters believe President Trump dividing country
And 3% of American voters said they "haven't heard enough" about Trump to say if they have a favorable or unfavorable view him. Sixty-eight percent of voters think Trump's words/actions could cause an "international conflict", while 29 percent disagree.

Given nine overs to face, the visitors lost the wickets of David Warner, Usman Khawaja and nightwatchman Nathan Lyon in the space of 10 balls to leave Bangladesh in the box seat. "And personally, I am very happy with the way I am bowling", he added.

"It looks interesting. There was a lot of spin on Day One, but you expect that in the subcontinent". Rain is predicted on all five days of the Test, so the chances of a result will depend on how quickly the newly-laid outfield can dry - usually, the drainage is good.

Now that Nathan Lyon has secured admittance to that exclusive and shoulder-weary collective of spinners who can boast 250 Test wickets, he will once more be evaluated alongside the past practitioners of the slow bowling craft. Not in all conditions but in Bangladesh, we are better than them. They said go out and do us proud.

Questioned in the lead-up to the match about the prospect of passing Benaud's mark, Lyon had played down the looming achievement, but he revealed on Sunday evening that his family cared about the milestone.

"I think our spin attack is better than theirs". I want to win in India, that's big on my bucket list.
