Australia win by 3 wickets, Players shake hands, wonderful test match. Australia fighting back to win this test. Wonderful knock by Ponting to get his 31st century, sees Australia through to a good win in the first test. They lead the series 1-0.

Looking back at the test match, day 1 and day 2 belonged to Bangladesh, but Australia really fought hard like champions to come out winners. Good fighting effort from Bangladesh, but they did not have the fire power to finish things off. Man of the match is Gilchrist for his brilliant knock of 144.

That's it from here. Thanks for being with us, Please join us again for the second test on 16th of April at Chittagong. This is your commentator Binoy George signing off. It is bye from all of us.
