Bangladesh v Australia: David Warner and Usman Khawaja fail as Aussies collapse

28 August 2017, 01:55 | Franklin Nunez



With nine overs to survive before the close of play, Australian batsmen were unable to deal with the Bangladesh spinners on a pitch that offered considerable amount of turn and bounce. "For me, it is about playing well for the Australia cricket team", he said.

Khawaja, playing his first global match since January 22, then failed to play a shot to Shakib Al Hasan, before having a brain explosion and charging down the wicket, only to be turned back and caught short diving for his crease.

Part of the visitor's drills this time has included batting in the nets without a front pad, a lay created to emphasise the importance of using the bat in order to avoid leg-before decisions against the slow bowlers.

Bangladesh, meanwhile, have won two of their last three Tests, one against Sri Lanka and a historic win over England.

'I did not had anything in my mind during the time when I scored that century against Australia, ' Shahriar told Cricbuzz when his attention was drawn regarding what is the difference between now and then.

Bangladesh had run out of reviews, however replays suggested that the ball had hit Hasan's pad rather than the edge.

Maxwell added: "It is more about guys who are hitting the stumps regularly and Bangladesh do that really well". We all make errors.

"Run-outs are not ideal in any format of cricket - especially Test matches - but it's a game".

The whole Tal Afar area consists of 47 villages scattered around the city and its three towns. Tal Afar has always been a stronghold for hard-line Sunni insurgents.

The first Test against ninth-ranked Bangladesh in a decade has the makings of an epic battle and Australia's bowlers have gone to hell and back to reassert authority.

They have spinners who will challenge Australia's defensive techniques and patience, and one of those is also the world's best Test allrounder: Shakib Al Hasan. Star all-rounder Shakib is confident his team's home advantage and spin force will trouble its Australian counterpart.

"I think our spin attack is better than them".

"I've always said that I'm not about personal success but I woke up to a message from my mum and dad, and they said, 'go out and do us proud.' So you get those type of messages and you reflect on your career and where you stand in the game".

"We improved, but we didn't win the series". He made his 50 in 65 balls and showed that he was not willing to be dictated by the Australian bowlers just because they had higher ground, courtesy Cummins burst.

Mushfiqur Rahim saw off the session and was batting on 12 with Nasir Hossain who has yet to score.

In his next over he removed Imrul Kayes and Sabbir Rahman for nought off successive deliveries to reduce Bangladesh to 10 for 3.

Australia squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner (vc), Ashton Agar, Jackson Bird, Hilton Cartwright, Pat Cummins, Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Renshaw, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade.
