Spin-wary Australia faces confident Bangladesh


Bangladesh were bundled out for 260, but they staged the flawless fightback to leave Australia on 18 for 3 at the close of the first day of the Dhaka Test on Sunday.

It was a disastrous end to the day for Australia, who had been well-placed after skittling Bangladesh with time to spare, led by three wickets in two overs from speed demon Pat Cummins.

In 2008, Australia were scheduled to host Bangladesh for two winter Tests, but that series was postponed until 2010 due to a clash with the Beijing Olympics.

Spinner Mededi Hasan Miraz - who destroyed England late a year ago - ensured David Warner's poor record on the subcontinent continued, removing the Australian vice-captain LBW for eight. Bangladesh has some high-quality spinners that will pose problems for Australian batsmen.

During the course of the inning, Lyon passed Richie Benaud's mark of 248 wickets and went on to hit the 250 mark. It is to be noted that none of the members of the Australian cricket team, who resolved their long-standing pay dispute with their cricket board recently, have played a Test against Bangladesh in the past.

Herath has claimed nearly 70 per cent of his wickets on home tracks in Sri Lanka while Ashwin was proved even more dominant in familiar climes with greater than 71 per cent of his victims falling on Indian soil.

Usman Khawaja - whose return to the Test side has started horrendously - was caught short of his ground after pursuing a mindless single, adding to the early-innings woes of the tourists. Talking to a lot of the boys, we are quietly confident in our own processes to get the job done here in Bangladesh.

Shakib, off-spinner Mehedi Hasan and left-armer Taijul Islam took all 20 wickets when Bangladesh recorded its first-ever Test win over England by 108 runs in October.

The visitor is also expected to rely heavily on spinners in Dhaka by playing left-arm spinner Ashton Agar, for his first Test in four years, alongside veteran off-spinner Nathan Lyon.

"I think our spin attack is better than them". "They were courageous in their batting and played some incredible shots".

Speed demon Cummins earlier defied the draining 75 per cent humidity with a lethal opening spell to leave Bangladesh reeling at 3-10.

Nightwatchman Nathan Lyon lasted five balls before being trapped LBW by Shakib Al Hasan for a duck in the same over.Australia will resume with Renshaw unbeaten on six and skipper Steve Smith on three.
