PREVIEW BAN vs AUS, DAY 4: Australia reached 109-2 at stumps on the third day of the first Test after being set a victory target of 265 against Bangladesh on Tuesday. David Warner made an unbeaten 75 after Nathan Lyon’s 6-82 helped Australia dismiss Bangladesh for 221 in their second innings at Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. The visitors still need 156 runs on a difficult pitch with skipper Steve Smith, 25 not out, accompanying Warner at the crease overnight. Earlier, Bangladesh set Australia a target of 265 runs to win the opening Test after opener Tamim Iqbal top-scored with 78, his second half-century of the match. Bangladesh appeared on course for a bigger second innings total but off-spinner Nathan Lyon claimed 6-82 to help Australia restrict the rivals to 221 all out on the third day of the game in Dhaka. Lyon took full advantage of a spinning track at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, reducing the hosts to 205-8 by tea. Australia had scored 217 in their first innings in reply to Bangladesh's 260.

Commentary (Australia innings)

So, twice in two days we have seen the underdog teams coming out on top. If it was West Indies toppling the Englishmen last night, it's Bangladesh today who has surprised the world. They have now won a Test match against 5 Test playing nations - Zimbabwe, West Indies, Sri Lanka, England, and now Australia. They continue to rise and the near future looks bright for them. These two sides will meet again for the second Test in Chittagong on September 8, at 1000 local (0400 GMT). Can the hosts create another history by winning the series? Or will Australia come back hard to level it? We shall find out. Till then, Adios! Cheers!

Man of the Match, Shakib Al Hasan (translated from Bengali) is really delighted to contribute for his side. Gives a big round of applause to the crowd that came in huge numbers to support them. Tells us about the incident that happened last night, how his wife showed immense confidence in him as he was the one who felt that they won't be able to beat Australia today.

Mushfiqur Rahim says that it is a great feeling beating Australia. Recalls that they lost the first Test against England but came back stronger to beat them in the second. Credits the boys for playing really well. Mentions that their performances in the home conditions has been consistent. Applauds the performances of Shakib and Tamim in the first innings for laying the platform for them. Feels that there is a lot of room for improvement. Reckons that the wicket was a tough one to bat on. Praises his bowlers for getting 8 wickets on the final day. Also thanks the crowd for turning out in huge numbers.

Steven Smith says that it was a great Test match. Credits Bangladesh for playing very well. Adds that the partnership between Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan laid the platform for the hosts. Mentions that they did well to reach 240 on a track like this. Lauds his tail for batting brilliantly and trying really hard. Adds that they won't give any excuses and also mentions that they practiced well. Feels that the wicket turned a lot more compared to the practice wickets. Praises Warner for scoring a century on this tough wicket. Ends by saying that they were never able to adjust to the conditions and the pitch. Emphasizes on the fact that they are looking forward for the next game.

The home side got a lead of 43 runs and once again the veteran opener, Tamim Iqbal delivered for his side. Had it not been for Nathan Lyon's 6-fer, Australia would have had a challenge even more steeper. They kept the hosts to 265 and after losing two quick wickets early yesterday, they were pretty much into the contest until their weakness against the spin prevailed and that ultimately led to their downfall. Stay tuned as the presentation is coming up in a short while...

The Bangladeshi spinners kept the pressure on even when Pat Cummins was threatening to take his team over the line. In the end, Australia fell short of 20 runs and find themselves 0-1 down in the series. Earlier in the game, Bangladesh won a good toss but were rocked early at 10-3 on day 1. They recovered well through a 155-run stand between Tamim and Shakib which helped them to get 260 on the board. Australia's reply was pretty ordinary with the bat but the way their tail bailed them out is something that they will be happy about.

Australia came into day 4, requiring 156 to win with their two set batsmen out in the middle. David Warner and Steven Smith did the job commendably in the first hour as the former registered his ton and all was rosy for the visitors until the no. 1 all-rounder in the world stepped on the gas. Yes, Shakib Al Hasan turned the match upside down by removing Warner and from thereon the men from Down Under got exposed. They succumbed to pressure, kept losing wickets in clusters and thereby gave an opening to the hosts.

Bangladesh have pulled off their first ever Test win against the mighty Aussies. It's their greatest achievement and their expressions say it all. The packed Dhaka crowd is screaming at the top of their voices, their PM is all smiles in the stands with the national flag in her hand. Rahim leads the way. Well done, Bangla Tigers! They have proved yet again, they aren't underdogs anymore, especially in their own den.

70.5 Islam to Hazlewood, OUT! Bangladesh have created history! The crowd is going bonkers. Amazing scenes in Dhaka and the Bangladeshi players are absolutely ecstatic. Taijul Islam goes around the wicket, lands it around middle. Hazlewood prods forward and tries to defend but gets beaten only to be pinged on his pads. The hosts appeal and Nigel Llong raises his finger. Josh wants the review but the umpire tells him that they don't have any left. It's all over. BANGLADESH WIN BY 20 RUNS! 244/10

68.6 M Hasan to Cummins, Cummins will keep strike. Looks to go big but ends up dragging it towards deep mid-wicket. A huge over, this. 15 runs came off. 244/9

68.5 M Hasan to Cummins, SIX! That's gone the distance again. Is there a twist in the tale? Mehedi Hasan tosses it up around middle, Cummins clears his front leg and plays the slog sweep to perfection. He dumps it over the deep mid-wicket fence for the second time in the over. 243/9

68.4 M Hasan to Cummins, Turning in from around off, Cummins covers the line to defend. 237/9

67.6 Al Hasan to Hazlewood, Yes, he does! Closes the bat face and clips it towards square leg. 229/9

67.5 Al Hasan to Cummins, A bit too full, it's eased down to long on by Cummins for a single. Can Hazlewood survive? 229/9

67.4 Al Hasan to Cummins, Now Shakib cleverly slows it through the air, lands it around middle, it straightens and takes the leading edge which lobs away safely on the off side. 228/9

67.3 Al Hasan to Cummins, Around middle, turning in a bit, Cummins has his sticks covered as he blocks it back towards Shakib. 228/9

Not-so-well, Josh Hazlewood is forced to walk in next. Can he dig in there?

66.2 Hasan to Lyon, OUT! Change in bowling does it for Rahim! But what's with Sarkar man? Is he a juggling star? He's taken all the catches on the second attempt only. Hasan loops it up around middle, Lyon once again opts for the sweep shot. Gets a bit of glove on it as the ball lobs over the keeper. Good anticipation shown there by Sarkar. He was at first slip and so he quickly sprints towards leg slip, stretches out both his hands but could not hold onto it. He then got both his hands under the ball to gobble it. Bangladesh just a wicket away from victory. 228/9

66.1 M Hasan to Lyon, Lyon is busy brooming around. Gets down, takes it on the full to sweep it towards short fine leg. 228/8

62.2 T Islam to Lyon, Good shout but it's turned down again. Lyon tries fetching it from outside off. He misses the sweep shot and is hit on the pads. Taijul turns back to appeal but umpire Nigel Llong shakes his head. Maybe, the impact was outside the line. 216/8

62.1 T Islam to Lyon, Turning away from a length, easily left alone. 216/8

61.6 Al Hasan to Pat Cummins, That's dropped! Shakib gets extra bounce off the deck, Cummins looks to defend it but the ball takes the shoulder of the bat and flies towards Sarkar at first slip who leaps to take it but the ball doesn't stick.

60.1 T Islam to Lyon, Floated delivery outside off, pushed towards the cover region. 206/8

59.6 Al Hasan to Cummins, A loud shout for LBW! In fact, Shakib is dancing while appealing here. Umpire Aleem Dar is not convinced. Slider around middle, Cummins misses it and the ball hits him on the pads. They appeal but it seemed like it is going down leg. No, the replays show it would have gone on to clip the leg stump and the umpire's call would have stayed. 206/8

59.5 Al Hasan to Cummins, Fuller, actually a bit to full. It's bunted back to the bowler. 206/8

57.1 Hasan to G Maxwell, OUT! Knocked him over! Back-to-back 5-fers! 10-wicket haul for him in the match for the second time in his career and Shakib Al Hasan is leading from the front here. The crowd erupts in joy. Would you believe Maxwell is going first ball after lunch. Shakib fires it around off, it straightens up a touch and stays really low. Glenn Maxwell camps back to hit it through the line but is undone by the low bounce. The ball strikes the off pole and the all-rounder is off for a celebratory run. Bangladesh are just 2 wickets away from a win. 199/8

Welcome back for what could be the final session of this Test. Australia find themselves in a precarious position now and it now lies on how Maxwell goes about his business. Will he counter-attack? Or will we see the hosts' spinners run through the lower order? It promises to be an action-packed session. Shakib Al Hasan to kick off proceedings. A slip and short leg in place. Let's play...

... Day 4, Session 2...

Taijul Islam also supported the world number 1 all-rounder by picking up two crucial wickets. Currently Maxwell and Cummins (the last recognized pair) are battling it out in the middle and the Aussies will hope that they can see their side through. With Cricket Australia confirming that Hazlewood can bat, the visitors have another wicket up their sleeve. Bangladesh on the other hand will look to keep things simple and attack the stumps to pick up the remaining three wickets. Effectively the final session awaits.

The crucial wicket of Warner has changed the course of the game. He was the difference between the two sides yesterday and once he departed after scoring a ton, the visitors fell apart losing 5 wickets for 37 runs. The first hour of play totally belonged to the Aussies where for a moment it seemed like Warner and Smith would guide their team over the line. But Shakib Al Hasan had different plans altogether. He weaved his magic and ended up picking 4 crucial wickets to dent the momentum that the Aussies had.

56.6 T Islam to Cummins, Spinning away from around middle, Cummins fails to put his bat to ball. So much turn on this occasion that the ball deflects off Rahim's gloves. The second slip fielder comes forward and catches the ball. The players appeal for a catch but the umpire is not interested. He instead calls for LUNCH ON DAY 4! 199/7

Umbrella field for Cummins! Can he survive the final ball before lunch?

56.5 Islam to Cummins, NOT OUT! The on-field call stays! Floats this one around off, turns away a touch after pitching. Cummins gets forward and tries to defend it. Gets beaten by the away spin and is hit flush on his back pad. The players appeal for a long time but the umpire stays put. Rahim asks his bowler and the latter convinces him to go for the review. Ultra Edge shows that there was daylight between bat and pad. Ball Tracker shows that it was pitched around off, impact a bit outside off so the umpire's call stays. Cummins survives and Bangladesh lose a review in this process. 199/7

After thinking for a long time, Taijul Islam somehow convinces Rahim to opt for the review against Cummins for LBW.

56.4 T Islam to Cummins, Cummins lunges forward and defends it. 199/7

56.3 T Islam to G Maxwell, Maxwell gets forward and drives it through mid off for a single. 199/7

55.5 Al Hasan to Cummins, Close shave! Floats it around middle and leg, Cummins prods forward and tries to defend. Gets an inside edge to it, the ball brushes the pads and goes on a bounce to the fielder at short leg. Every ball Shakib bowls seems to be something special. 196/7

55.3 Al Hasan to Cummins, Quicker around off, Cummins blocks it out. 196/7

54.6 Islam to Agar, OUT! Another one bites the dust! Floats it outside off, Ashton Agar reaches out to the ball and ends up chipping it straight back to the bowler. Taijul accepts it gleefully and Bangladesh are all smiles. They start celebrating and the hero of the first innings for Australia departs. The visitors are losing the plot here and Maxwell is losing out of partners. 195/7

54.5 T Islam to Agar, Shorter and spinning in from outside off, Agar camps back and punches it towards mid-wicket. 195/6

Ashton Agar strides out next. Can he again play a vital knock like he played in the first innings?

51.4 Al Hasan to Wade, OUT! Shakib does the trick again! Spinning in from outside off, Wade shuffles across and tries to clip it on the leg side. Fails to hit it and gets rapped straight on the pads. The players start appealing and umpire Aleem Dar raises his finger up. Maxwell asks his partner to opt for the review and he does so. Ultra Edge shows that there was no bat involved. Now time for Ball Tracker. It shows three reds and Wade has to make the long way back to the pavilion. Australia have lost 4 wickets in less than 4 overs only scoring 34 runs. They have exhausted all their reviews now. Bangladesh are in pole position now. 192/6

Wade was living dangerously and now he has been adjudged LBW! He opts for the review this time after Maxwell asks him to do so.

40.4 M Hasan to Smith, FOUR! In the air... and it's through! Was that a dropped chance? Yes, indeed! Hasan tosses it up around middle, Smith runs out of patience. He dances down the track, drags it uppishly towards the left of Tamim at mid on. The latter dives to his left but the ball bursts through his fingers and races down to the long on fence for a boundary. That should have been taken. 152/2

The ball goes off something and Rahim quickly moves to his right to take it. A loud appeal and Bangladesh are really confident. The umpire, however, stays put. The hosts opt for the review. Ultra Edge shows that there's daylight between bat and ball. Warner survives a scare. Stays on 98! Only once has he been dismissed in the 90s in Tests informs the commentator on-air. 140/2

Bangladesh have opted for a review as Rahim feels Warner has nicked one down the leg side. The latter is on 98. Can this be the turning point of the game?

34.2 T Islam to Warner, Flatter outside off, Warner taps it towards point and settles for a single. 126/2

David Warner calls for a helmet as the previous delivery nearly hurt him.

34.1 T Islam to Warner, What was that? That's really nasty. It's a nightmare for a wicketkeeper says the commentator on air. But it's dangerous for Warner too. This one kicks off the deck, Warner was on the back foot to play but is taken aback by the nasty bounce. He ducks and Rahim behind the stumps had no chance to cut it off. Races down to the fine leg fence and the umpire signals it as four byes. 125/2

The hosts will be backing their bowlers to pick up quick wickets and get the game back in their favour as a wicket can turn the tide. The first hour should be crucial and will definitely determine the course of the game. Will the Kangaroos chase down the total or can the Tigers pick up the remaining wickets to pull off their first ever Test win against Australia? Join us in a while for the live action.

Hello and a warm welcome to the fourth day of the 1st Test between Bangladesh and Australia. The visitors have pulled things back and made the contest even courtesy a sublime knock from Warner. If the southpaw and Smith continue to dig in like yesterday, it will be Australia's game to lose. 156 runs on this Mirpur track will be a really dodgy affair.

... Day 4, Session 1 ...

Story of day 4 - 156 runs still required with 8 wickets in hand and two set batsmen out in the middle. Will the men from Down Under apply themselves and prove the world that they can play spin? Or will we see Bangladesh pull off a historic win? Join us tomorrow at 1000 local (0400 GMT) for what could be the final day of this Test. Until next time, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!

Skipper Smith survived an early scare when he was on a golden duck and then got a reprieve at short leg too but since then he never looked back. He continued to march on and stitched an unbeaten 81-run stand with the southpaw. Bangladesh threw all they had at the current pair but just couldn't break this stand. Still all is not lost for them, if they manage to dismiss this pair early tomorrow, who would know this Test can turn upside down. But for that, they need to stay patient and not let the tourists run away with the game.

Safe to say, Australia are pretty much into this. The whole of their dressing room is up on its feet to laud the efforts shown by their two senior men - David Warner and Steven Smith. After bundling out Bangladesh for 221, courtesy a 6-fer from Lyon, they had their task cut out. Chasing 265 on such a deck, the visitors lost Renshaw early. Khawaja's poor run only made the matters worse but it was Warner who didn't let the hosts' spinners dictate terms. He came out with intent and it has paid off pleasingly well as he scored an unbeaten 75 to set the tone.
