Why Bangladesh's win isn't an upset

Australian cricket top order with plenty to work on following Bangladesh loss says Dean Jones

A win in the second test starting September 4 will only strengthen the belief that Bangladesh is no longer a pushover team at home in Test cricket.

Smith said Australia's first innings total of 217 had been their undoing.

Shakib then took centre stage as he lured Glenn Maxwell (23) down the track before turning the ball away, Mushfiqur Rahim having the simple task of completing the stumping.

"In the first innings the partnership between Tamim and Shakib really set the game up for them", Smith said.

That disparity was far from evident during the first Test, with Australia's batsmen largely unable to handle the Bangladeshi spin onslaught led by man of the match Shakib Al Hasan. "After this Test match they will show a lot more respect". The New Zealand great pulled the feat off thrice.

"Australians are very good at it, we are learning from them", Shakib said when asked about the verbal volleys.

"I think we made a few errors, a few guys getting out ways we've got out before and not learning from mistakes".

Cummins and Ashton Agar stalled Bangladesh's progress to steer Australia to 193-8 at tea, combining 49 off 143.


Smith assisted in the strong finish as Australia scored 40 runs off the last 10 overs to finish the day on 109-2, walking off the square with 25 runs on the board to continue alongside Warner in the morning.

Warner survived a review before the southpaw brought up his 19th Test century, a second in Asia.

The paceman gave an indication of things to come with his third delivery, which flew off the shoulder of Soumya Sarkar's blade and soared over the agitated slip fielders.

Things looked to be going Australia's way when Tamim Iqbal spilled a tough chance diving at mid-on, giving Smith a reprieve, and a boundary, and taking Australia's score to 2-152.

Shakib was aided by offspinner Mehidy Hasan who finished with 3-62.

Pat Cummins scored an unbeaten 33 down the order to inject some drama, hitting a couple of sixes in his aggressive innings. This is their first win and they would like to see more in upcoming test match in the series.

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.

"We probably let ourselves down a bit in the first innings with the bat".
