Shakib led Bangladesh to magical victory against Australia at Mirpur Test

Posted August 31, 2017

Dhaka: The man who led Bangladesh to their first Test victory against Australia says the tourists will now show "a lot more respect" to the Tigers after a humbling 20-run defeat to Test cricket's ninth-ranked nation.

Set an imposing 265 to win, the visitors were bowled out for 244 shortly after lunch on Wednesday's fourth day, with star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan claiming 5/85 to finish with 10 wickets for the match.

With Australia losing five wickets for 90 runs in the first session, it was an uphill battle from that point on and Bangladesh continued their resurgence, having earlier beaten England and Sri Lanka in 2016/17.

Glenn Maxwell was unbeaten on 8 and Matthew Wade was batting on five at the interval, with just the tailenders to come.

Apart from Shakib, fellow spinners Taijul and Mehidy Hassan took the remaining wickets and helped their side register their 10th-victory in 101 Tests.

Mattis said he would provide his advice to Trump on how to implement his policy after the panel came up with recommendations. Tammy Duckworth, a military veteran who lost both her legs during combat, also criticized Trump's ban on transgender troops.

Only two of Australia's top six - David Warner and Steven Smith - have played more than 50 Tests, while Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim have each played more than 50 Tests for Bangladesh.

Steve O'Keefe will join up with the Australia squad for the second Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong, which starts next week.

"But you've got to keep trying to learn and keep trying to get better in these conditions".

Smith was gutted to have lost the match, and said: "Yeah, it was a great Test match".

Taijul Islam's 3-60 and Mehedi Hasan's 2-80 helped Bangladesh a lot to make the apparently hard match easy for the Tigers.

The Cowboys said ticket buyers can choose to either get a refund or have the money donated to Hurricane Harvey relief. Watt was asked Monday whether the game should be cancelled entirely, he said there were "much bigger things at hand".

Warner went to his ton off only 121 balls but was trapped lbw by Shakib soon after to depart for 112. Bangladesh had a similar story when they played against England during their maiden win a year ago, when the spinners did the job in a rearguard effort.

Cummins hit three fours and two sixes to bring his side achingly close to a win, but Shakib's spin partner Taijul brought the curtain down on the innings with his dismissal of Josh Hazlewood for nought.

Shakib is now the No. 1 all-rounder in the ICC Test rankings and he showed exactly why as he spun a web around the Australians after a fine 84 in Bangladesh's first innings.

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 couple of times. We have many batsmen to bat still in the second innings, so I think we have the edge. The wicket spun from the first day, as I said we let ourselves down with the bat in the first innings. This is Bangladesh's first ever Test victory against Australia.
