Warner, Handscomb put Australia in control of Chittagong Test

Australia vs Bangladesh

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) issued a statement on Tuesday, on the second day's play, stating they were co-coordinating with the security agencies to ascertain facts.

Bangladesh police say they're investigating after the Australian team bus was damaged by a small rock or stone as it travelled to the hotel after the opening day of the second cricket test, although they think it was likely related to roadworks.

Australian opener Matt Renshaw said he can learn from opening partner David Warner about how to handle spin as they seek to avoid a whitewash against Bangladesh in the second Test in Chittagong, beginning on Monday.

But it was the 105-run sixth-wicket partnership on the first day between Rahim and Sabbir Rahman, who made 66, that remained the highlight of the innings after the hosts were reduced to 117 for 5. It was also the first time the Tigers' top four have been dismissed by a spinner and the first time any nation's top four have been trapped LBW by the same bowler. "There's not much spin there at the moment so it's a good challenge for us spinners to challenge the batters and challenge their defense on a wicket like this".

Cummins took the new ball but the second over was bowled by Lyon, who quickly found the ball did not deviate off the surface anywhere near as dramatically as it had done last week.

"All the nets in the world don't make up for a lack of match practice before a testing series", said the former skipper, "It's a common refrain among cricketers; you don't make runs or take wickets in the nets".

Lyon (4-58) also trapped out-of-form Imrul Kayes for 4, with a straight delivery that skidded to baffle the batsman.




Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and opted to bat first.

Left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe was drafted into the squad and could be included as a third spinner along with Nathan Lyon and Ashton Agar if selectors decide to go with only one paceman on a pitch expected to offer turn.

Two wickets fell in the post-lunch session as Lyon sent back Mominul Haque, who boasts the highest batting average of the Bangladesh team.

Rahman failed to keep his balance to be stumped in the 82nd over as Lyon completed his 11th five-for.

Alongside Mushfiq, all-rounder Nasir Hossain was not out on 19.

The hosts, who lead the series 1-0, will now be keen to pick up a few wickets as early as possible.
