Highlights, Bangladesh vs Australia: 1st Test, Day 3 at Mirpur - As It Happened

PREVIEW BAN vs AUS, Day 3: Shakib Al Hasan lit up his 50th Test with all-round brilliance to help Bangladesh claim a handy first-innings lead over a listless Australia in the second Test on Monday. A day after rescuing Bangladesh from a top-order collapse with the bat, the left-arm spinner claimed 5/68 to help dismiss Australia for 217 and justify his status as the world's top-ranked Test all-rounder. Having claimed a 43 run first-innings lead on a viciously turning track, Bangladesh further consolidated their position and were 45/1 at the close on the second day. Soumya Sarkar threw his wicket away after scoring 15, but Tamim Iqbal was batting on 30 with nightwatchman Taijul Islam — yet to open his account. Bangladesh stretched their overall lead to 88 runs and Australia will have the unenviable task of batting in the fourth innings on a fast-deteriorating track at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. Resuming on a precarious 18/3, the tourists soon lost captain Steve Smith, their best batsman. Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan, who took 12 wickets at the same venue to inspire Bangladesh's first Test win over England last year, struck in his second over, sneaking one through the gate to dismiss Smith for eight.
