1.5 to Soumya Sarkar, this time the edge has been pouched at gully by Handscomb. Nips away off the seam from length on middle, Sarkar is squared up as this one flies to the cordon. Regulation catch. Sarkar can shadow his shot for as long as he wants inside the dressing room. Cummins' pace has done the trick early for Australia.. 10/1
3.5 to Imrul Kayes, that's a shocker of a stroke. Looking to punch on the up, no feet movement whatsoever as he threw his bat out to play away from the body. This one took the bottom edge as the keeper dived forward to complete a good catch. Bangladesh in trouble already.. 10/2
3.6 to Sabbir Rahman, the bat hit the ground, but at the same time, it took a big edge on the way through to the wicketkeeper, so Aleem Dar's decision will stay. Sabbir may have only reviewed out of confusion. This was a full delivery that swung away late, Sabbir played with minimal feet movement and got a big edge through to Wade. Cummins and Australia on fire. 10/3
Nathan Lyon3067932.631416300
53.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, got him, the extra bounce has done the trick. Australia will be rejuvenated at the stroke of tea. This drifted in, pitched on off and spun away sharply, Shakib jabbed hard at the delivery which flew off the shoulder of the bat to Smith who took a dolly at slip. No. 248 for Lyon, equals Richie Benaud . 188/5
71.3 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, straightforward catch at short leg. Spins back in from the rough, Mehedy prods down the wrong line with little conviction, the ball lobs off the glove to Handscomb.. 240/7
75.2 to Taijul Islam, yes he can. This is an arm ball that pitches on middle and slides back in to beat the inside edge. That would've crashed into middle and leg. As far as decisions go, this was a straightforward. 250th Test wicket for Lyon He's the 13th spinner to do so. 246/9
Ashton Agar12.524633.58578000
60.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, this is flatter in trajectory, pitches outside off and drifts back in to hit Mushfiqur in front of off as he offers his pad. Sure, he had a good stride forward but not enough to compound doubts, if any, for Nigel Llong. Straightforward decision, you have to say. Agar has a wicket on his comeback. 198/6
74.3 to Nasir Hossain, this one drifted in a long way from around the stumps, the batsman lunged forward to defend, and it appears as if the ball hit the pad first before thudding into the bat. Hint of turn means this would crashed into the stumps. Nigel Llong's decision has been overturned. Credit to Agar, the captain didn't seemed convinced at first but he implored and reasoned to him why he thought this was out.. 246/8
78.5 to Shafiul Islam, it was just a matter of time before he perished, and it has come about courtesy an old-fashioned slog. Nicely tossed up outside off, he looked to swing this across the line, towards Chittagong maybe, ended up top-edging it to mid-on. Simple catch. 260/10
Glenn Maxwell501513.00222000
45.3 to Tamim Iqbal, there's the wicket against the run of play and Warner takes a dolly. It's Maxwell's part-time offspin that has given Australia a big breakthrough. Tamim shaped to cut but this one turned, stopped on him, forcing him to check his shot. He went through with the stroke and ended up lobbing it straight to Warner at backward point. As easy as they come. Bangladesh were just starting to run away with this.. 165/4

Mehidy Hasan Miraz2666232.381215100
5.3 to DA Warner, this time he's walking back. Played for the turn when there was none, hit on the pad as this drifted back in a long way and held its line. Didn't have too much distance to the leg stump. He was also deep inside the crease, perhaps why Warner didn't review this one.. 9/1
11.6 to SPD Smith, Steven Smith is bowled. Australia's best batsman is gone. The Dhaka crowd has no reason to dislike Monday mornings. This is a big moment in the game. Flight on middle and leg, Smith advances, gets to the pitch but rather inexplicably misses the ball. Hits the leg stump. He tried to whip the ball with as little of the bat as possible, which resulted in a big bat-pad gap. The ball found it, and introduced itself to the stumps.. 33/4
36.6 to MS Wade, 90 kph, absolutely plumb! Dead in front, save height. Wade has a chat with Maxwell and decides against reviewing. It is the non-turning offbreak, flat on off, Wade gets forward, lulled in by the fullish length, but it's not full enough. It has enough room to skid on and beat the inside edge, struck on the pad right in front of middle and off. Missing the stumps says HawkEye. I was quite wrong.. 124/7
Shakib Al Hasan25.576852.631208100
6.6 to NM Lyon, there's another one for Shakib. So the decision to have a nightwatchman hasn't worked. Stone dead. This is full, drifts in from around the stumps and misses the inside edge to hit him on the pad. First thought was it may have been going down leg, but umpire Nigel Llong had no doubts whatsoever. Lyon didn't bother reviewing.. 14/3
35.1 to MT Renshaw, outside edge, taken at first slip. The Shere Bangla roars and break into chants of Shakib. Back of a length, loopy outside off, Renshaw shuffles across and perhaps expected it to spin in more as he waited on the backfoot. The ball comes on with the arm, takes the edge and first slip makes a mess at first, throws the ball in the air as it slips out but the ball settles back down as he completes the catch. 117/6
43.1 to GJ Maxwell, done him in with a terrific display of loop and length. Lots of flight outside off, Maxwell sees that and advances, like he has been doing through the session. It is wide outside off so Maxwell has to reach out, the ball pitches and rips to beat the bat, Mushfiqur does the rest. Wonderful delivery, and a big wicket too. 144/8
68.3 to PJ Cummins, cleaned 'im up now. Flat on off, Cummins looks to go through cover, but the ball doesn't turn. It hits the inside edge, then ricochets into the back pad and then crashes into off stump. A huge bat-pad gap, but Shakib doesn't seem to care. Variable turn, the Jadeja way. 193/9
74.5 to JR Hazlewood, straight into the hands of short leg. Shakib become the fourth player to take a five-for against all nine Test-playing sides. Short down leg, spinning in, worked away off the pad. A good, sharp catch.. 217/10
Taijul Islam813214.00324000
32.3 to PSP Handscomb, Handscomb has been pinged in front and Nigel Llong gives it. He does not even consult with his partner if he has to go for the review despite the ball sliding into him. And that's a good decision because he was pinged plumb in front of middle and leg. Tried to shift back into his crease but the ball slid in and was pushed through quicker and hit him on the pad. 102/5

52.1 to Tamim Iqbal, bursts off the deck and takes off to Mars. Flies into the gloves of the keeper. Caught behind? there is a deflection. Not given out by the on-field umpire. Smith challenges the decision. Tamim jabs at the ball outside off before belatedly dropping his hands and swaying his upper body away. Ultra Edge detects a spike. Umpire Dar reverses his decision and sends Tamim on his way. What a prancing delivery! Good overhead catch from Wade - he just rose with the ball, which had brushed the glove of Tamim. This pitch is throwing up all sorts of tricks. Watch out, Australia batsmen. Another one gone wrong for Dar. 135/4
Nathan Lyon34.3108262.371645300
27.1 to Taijul Islam, there's the skidder. Lyon pins Taijul in front for 4. That was plumber than the Mario brothers! Slides in with the arm from around the wicket and catches the front pad in front of middle. Taijul searches for turn - there isn't any - and he plays outside the line. Tajul does so very late. It would have carried onto hit the middle of middle. 61/2
33.2 to Imrul Kayes, not much Kayes could do about that! Unplayable. The length is shortish, Kayes' footwork is indecisive - he doesn't know whether to come forward or go back. The ball rips, takes the shoulder of the bat and lobs to second slip. Australia will take it, but will they really?. 67/3
55.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, Shakib dares to launch big again, this time he holes out to cover. He skips down the track. Lyon tosses it on middle and gets it to break away. Shakib was looking for the encore over mid-off, ends up slicing is squarer to Cummins who completes the overhead catch. Two wickets in four overs for Australia, but Bangladesh nudge towards a lead of 200. 143/5
69.1 to Sabbir Rahman, another one. Inside-edged into the pads, shortish on off, the ball turns back in, Sabbir is lunging forward to defend but the length was terrific- full but not too full, allowing the ball enough room to spin. Takes the inside edge, then onto the pad, then straight to short leg. Replays show no bat, or glove. That was spinning down leg too. 186/8
77.5 to Shafiul Islam, Straight off the bat to short leg. Handscomb falls to his right to pouch it with his right hand, inches from the ground. Brilliant catch. Regulation offbreak from Lyon. Islam prods it to the man under the helmet. Lyon claims a five-wicket haul - his fifth in Asia and tenth overall. What a one-handed catch. The key was Handscomb stayed low. 214/9
79.3 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mehidy holes out to deep backward square leg. Lyon's six-wicket haul wraps up Bangladesh's second innings for 221. Naaaaaaice Gary! Tossed up on off stump, Mehidy forays down the track and hoicks it straight to Khawaja as he can't clear the bigger side of the ground. 221/10
Glenn Maxwell502404.80204000
Ashton Agar20.525522.64915000
20.1 to Soumya Sarkar, gone. Off the third attempt. Khawaja takes the catch, finally. Juggle, parry and taken. That's terrible batting. Flight and loop outside off, Soumya runs out and looks to hit that over long-on but the ball skews off the outside half. Mis-timed. Khawaja settles underneath it at long-on, the ball pops out of his reverse-cupped hands, he drops the second attempt into his body, then gets inches off the ground to take the catch. Well done, panicked and didn't panic in the same catch!. 43/1
68.4 to Nasir Hossain, edged and gone. Bangladesh collapsing. Shortish outside off from Agar, the ball spins a touch, Nasir goes back, looking to cut - that was far too close to cut - but gets an under-edge. Wade takes a good catch, keeps his hands in a good position. Suddenly, Australia could be looking at something around 250 to chase.. 186/7

Mehidy Hasan Miraz1938024.21789200
8.2 to MT Renshaw, second lbw appeal in two balls, and umpire Llong raises his finger now! This was the straight ball from around the wicket, and Renshaw brings his bat down in line but so very late. Mehidy hits the front pad below the knee-roll in line with middle. That was pretty adjacent. 27/1
66.2 to NM Lyon, Mehedi returns and provides Bangladesh the breakthrough. Full offbreak, finishes on middle, bounces, balloons off the glove. Sarkar at first slip follows the ball to his left and clings onto the overhead catch on the rebound. Excellent reflexes. The sweep-happy Lyon is gone, and Bangladesh are just one away. 228/9
Nasir Hossain32200.66160000
Shakib Al Hasan2878553.0312510100
9.2 to UT Khawaja, Shakib sends off Khawaja! Tossed up on off stump, Khawaja loads up for a sweep, but this ball bounces, takes the top edge and balloons to deep backward square leg running in. Taijul tracks it down. Twin failures for Khawaja. Shakib's party in Mirpur, meanwhile, continues. 28/2
41.5 to DA Warner, Ooooooh, Warner has been given out lbw by umpire Dar. Warner challenges the on-field out decision. This looks adjacent to naked eye, though. The tracker returns three reds as well, and Bangladesh finally breakthrough. Shakib gets it to skid in on middle from over the wicket. It keeps low and surprises Warner, who was initially shaping to sweep, then switched to a pull. He got into a tangle and was pinned in front. Umpire Dar gets it right again. End of a grand innings, nevertheless. Well played, Warner. 158/3
45.5 to SPD Smith, and Shakib has Smith nicking behind. Mirpur raises itself to a huuuuuuge roar. It was flat not all that short outside off. Smith ventures a cut but only manages to feather it behind. The Ultra Edge detects the spike. Mushfiqur merrily snaps it up. Fine grab. Shakib, in his 50th Test, keeps giving Bangladesh hope. 171/4
51.4 to MS Wade, It's that man Shakib again! Wade has been trapped in front. He challenges the on-field out decision - though this looks plumb. Pretty full and skids in on middle from over the wicket. A crease-bound Wade is beaten on the inside edge, having played around his front pad. The tracker suggests it would have gone onto crash into leg stump. Dar gets it right again; Australia have exhausted their reviews. 192/6
57.1 to GJ Maxwell, got him first ball after lunch. That's a five-for, Shakib you beauty. Maxwell goes back to cut, this ball pitches on middle and spins away a wee bit, keeps a touch low, the thin inside edge crashes into the stumps. The man who stood int he way of Bangladesh and victory is gone. And he's walking back ever-so-slowly.. 199/8
Taijul Islam19.526033.02878000
48.2 to PSP Handscomb, what a stunner this is! Reflex-action catch right out of the top drawer, off the second attempt. Soumya, you beauty. This wasn't all that short, Handscomb makes the cardinal sin of looking to cut that, only manages a thick edge that is absolutely flying. Soumya, instinctively puts his left hand out to stop that, the ball hits his palm and bobbles up, but he still has the presence of mind and composure to look back, dive fully and complete the catch just as it was dying on him. Sensational stuff. 50th Test wicket for Taijul . 187/5
54.6 to AC Agar, Agar scoops a return catch; Mirpur goes berserk. Tossed up nicely just outside off, the ball stops on the batsman, who checks his drive and simply offers up a return catch with about 10 minutes to go for lunch. Bangladesh just three away. 195/7
70.5 to JR Hazlewood, #Scenes in Mirpur! Taijul pins Hazlewood in front and wraps up a famous win for Bangladesh. They beat Australia for the first time ever in Test cricket! Tossed up and turns into the left-hander, from around the wicket, Hazlewood plays down the wrong line and is rapped on the front pad in line with middle. That's plumb. Hazlewood signals for a review, but Australia have none left. It's all over in Mirpur. What a match. 244/10
