Shakib helps Bangladesh register its greatest Test win

Shakib helps Bangladesh register its greatest Test win

Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the remainder of the series against Bangladesh after sustaining a side strain during the ongoing first Test in Mirpur.

"The first innings, I thought the partnership between Shakib and Tamim really set the game up for them".

Having compiled a match-defining 155-run stand with Tamim in the first innings, southpaw Shakib dazzled with his 5-85 in the second innings to follow up his 5-68 in the previous to celebrate his 50th Test appearance by notching the Man-of-the-Match award. A cameo from Pat Cummins (33*) had Aussie fans hopeful but a rampaging Shakib - who finished the match with 10 wickets - eventually led his side to a triumphant finish. The New Zealand great pulled the feat off thrice.

"Naturally our spinners can do much better than they did and it would release pressure from Shakib", he said. Australia's captain Steven Smith and David Warner added 130 but left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan dismissed both the batsmen and their middle-order failed to rise the occasion.

With catch after catch coming from Lyon's spinning skill, there were moments in Bangladesh's second innings where it looked like Australia might claw their way back into this Test.

Australia have slumped to a disastrous 20-run defeat to Bangladesh in a gripping first Test in Dhaka.

Warner, who was unbeaten on 75 overnight, reached his 19th Test century off 121 balls with two runs off spinner Taijul Islam.

But Shakib made the devastation on Australia.

Warner went to his ton off only 121 balls but was trapped lbw by Shakib soon after to depart for 112.

On a turning track where their frontline batsmen have struggled against Bangladesh's three-pronged spin attack, Peter Handscomb, Matthew Wade and Ashton Agar all fell in quick succession before lunch.

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. This is their first win and they would like to see more in upcoming test match in the series. If the need arises Hazelwood will come out to bat in Australia's second innings but following that, he will fly back to his country.

Bangladesh now have a 1-0 lead in the two match series and will strive for a historic series win in the second game to be played at Chittagong between September 4-8.
