9.1 to Tamim Iqbal, pins him lbw. Lovely change of pace from Lyon! This is quicker, having spent much of the morning tossing the ball up. Tamim is too late in bringing his bat down. Worse, his front pad is right in front of middle and off, and that means he has to bring it across to have any hope of meeting the ball. Can't do so. And the ball has a free path to skid on and strike low on the front pad.. 13/1
13.4 to Imrul Kayes, huge appeal for lbw, umpire Llong says no, but Smith has called for the review And Australia celebrate again. Lyon on song. He is testing both edges of the bat by varying his pace and flight - when its slow and loopy, the ball straightens from around the wicket to the left-hander. When its quicker, it skids on, and at that point batsman can't be playing across the line. Kayes doesn't care for that. He's under pressure and he wants to dispel it. Goes for the big slog sweep. Doesn't connect. Struck low on the front pad, replays indicate its in line with off stump, and this pitch doesn't have the bounce for the ball to lob over the stumps. 21/2
29.4 to Soumya Sarkar, traps him lbw and umpire Llong says off you go. Sarkar comes down to chat with his partner, but if he has to be doing that, he knows he hasn't hit it. What a strike from Australia's lead spinner. Right on the stroke of lunch, he unleashes one of his quicker balls, and it skids on so much that it hits the back pad in line with all three stumps. Sarkar is just too slow to bring his bat down. He's also expecting the ball to turn, when it just hasn't done so all morning.. 70/3
33.6 to Mominul Haque, and again! Fourth lbw for Lyon, four dismissals. Lyon gets this to drift on, like he has been doing through the morning. Flat and straight, Mominul goes back, looking to flick this through the leg side, but the ball drifts on, beats the inside edge and hits the front pad in front of middle. Mominul looks at his partner in hope, but Shakib sends him on his way. Just being regularly beaten on the inside edge are Bangladesh here. Plumb.. 85/4
81.2 to Sabbir Rahman, Wade thinks he's pulled off a stumping here, and he might well be right. The third umpire comes in and this might be a pretty unfortunate dismissal. Sabbir, trying to pull a ball darting sneakily past his thighs, overbalances! He is pivoting through his shot, and during the course of that, his back leg ends up being on the crease - only by a hair's breath - while his front leg is up in the air even though it was behind the crease line. Wade senses his chance and breaks the stumps. Oh and Lyon has a five-for. Niiiiice, Garry. Three back-to-back five-wicket hauls in Tests. 222/6
97.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, bowled him. Lyon finds turn straightaway. Five wickets on the first day and he strikes with his second ball on day 2. Loopy delivery woth just enough flight to draw the batsman forward. Mushfiqur presses forward but the ball spins in very sharply to take the inside edge and whip the bails off. 265/7
113.2 to Taijul Islam, Niiiiiice Gary! Lyon's seven-wicket haul wraps up Bangladesh for 305. This was the tossed-up offbreak outside off, Taijul swishes at it and sends an outside edge to the right of Smith at first slip. 305/10
Steve O'Keefe2307903.43886000
Ashton Agar2395222.261104000
46.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, he's walking! Agar has instant vindication as Shakib nicks behind! This is again a very quick delivery, angling across the left-hander. The only problem is, it doesn't have the kind of width the batsman is looking for. Shakib still tries to force it away, perhaps through cover, but only ends up offering a catch to Matthew Wade, who collects it gleefully. Excellent take from the under-fire wicketkeeper. Came off a very thick edge (No 10-for for Lyon). 117/5
110.1 to Nasir Hossain, Agar draws a thick edge, Wade completes another fine catch. Umpire Gould raises his finger. This was flatter and speared outside off. The length is short enough for a cut but it's a bit too close for the shot. Nasir can only nick it behind. Wade shows off his sharp reflexes. 293/8

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mehidy Hasan Miraz3869332.441636000
94.6 to HWR Cartwright, Mehidy has Cartwright nicking off to slip at the stroke of tea. Full and looped up outside off, the flight draws Cartwright forward. He pushes a long way away from the body and edges it to Sarkar at slip. Good, low catch from Sarkar (he did not have to juggle for this catch). 321/5
106.3 to GJ Maxwell, is there glove? Yes, says umpire Llong, but he wants to check if it has carried. Maxwell doesn't think it has hit glove at all. A big inside edge into the pad, the ball lobs up, Mushfiqur dives forward - to his right - and collects it easily. Two replays showed to the TV umpire - neither very clear - but it looked like Mushfiqur got his hands underneath that. He did. Good game awareness from Mushfiqur, but more instinctive, you see a ball coming towards you, you catch it. Just enough spin from Mehedi. Maxwell wanted to review that, used the T signal. He did review, which is why they used UltraEdge to check if there was an edge, but I've seen those checked without the review. I'm confused.. 346/7
108.6 to PJ Cummins, 74 kph, big appeal. No says Llong. Mushfiqur reviews. Now, that's not a bad review. "No shot offered," says the third umpire. It was flat and wide outside off, Cummins did not expect as much spin as there was, and left it, the ball spun back and struck Cummins well outside off. There is one green - impact, but that doesn't matter because he did not play a shot - and two reds (hitting off stump). And the decision is overturned.. 364/8
Mustafizur Rahman20.528444.039013010
1.3 to MT Renshaw, Mushfiq dives full-length to his right - down the leg side - and takes a belting catch! This was an innocuous length ball sliding just outside leg, Renshaw aims a glance, but does not get enough bat onto it. He tickles it off the face, and Mushfiq throws himself to his right and comes out with the ball in his right hand. Stunning one-handed catch and the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium raises itself to a big roar. 5/1
87.4 to DA Warner, The birthday boy breaks through! Jugging take from Kayes at leg gully. Warner walks back for a sublime 123! Mustafiz cuts his fingers across this chest-high short ball on middle. He cramps the opener for room. Warner looks away and aims to shovel it over Kayes. No dice. He ends up helping it in the air for an overhead catch. Kayes snatches at the ball and ultimately pouches it on the third attempt. Happy birthday, Fizz. 298/4
105.3 to MS Wade, full, straight and later! Plumb in front. Wade misses a straight delivery and reviews. Both pads, that one seamed back in late to beat the inside edge. Is it drifting down leg? "There is a gap between bat and ball," says the third umpire. Three reds and Wade has to trudge off. Did not look like a great review from the outset. There may be just a hint of reverse swing?. 342/6
119.5 to NM Lyon, that's the innings! You could see this coming. Sticks to his slant across the right hander, gets that slight movement away from a length. Lyon chases to drive on the up, gets a nice healthy edge that sails straight into fly slip's hands. 377/10
Shakib Al Hasan3138212.641305000
116.6 to AC Agar, Shakib finally adds his name into the wickets column. He does it all by himself. He tosses it on the rough outside off, this spins in sharply, breaks through Agar's gate and crashes into leg stump. Lovely. 376/9
Taijul Islam2117813.71797100
28.1 to SPD Smith, and the left-arm spinner bursts through the gate and strikes with his first delivery. Arm ball, slides in, full in length, Smith searches for turn but it isn't there. The ball sneaks through the bat-pad gap to hit the middle stump. Big breakthrough for Bangladesh. 98/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Pat Cummins1132722.45534000
4.5 to Soumya Sarkar, taken at first slip. Impressive Test bowling. He's pinned Sarkar on the back foot. Goes slightly fuller with his length this time and gets it to move slightly away from the off stump. Sarkar plays for the angle, without any feet. it's a hanging bat, and it's an invitation to take the outside edge. Cummins finds it. 11/1
52.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, caught behind! Pace has done it. Back of a length, straight through outside off. Fends away from the body and it's a healthy edge, no doubt at all. 129/7
Nathan Lyon33116061.811594000
12.6 to Tamim Iqbal, he does make too much room this time! Doesn't get to the pitch once again. He hasn't got to the pitch all morning, but he's been down the track quite a few times. Lyon gets one to turn away this time. It bounces and nearly takes Wade out. Like an awkward bouncer, it heads for his chest. He contorts slightly, and manages to hold on to it. A slight pause as he does all this, but Tamim is miles down the wicket. Enough time to take the bails off. Good work. 32/2
16.1 to Imrul Kayes, he's bunted it straight to extra cover! A nothing shot. No feet, no intent, no power. Maxwell takes it in slow-mo. This is back of a length, it sits in the pitch and turns away. Kayes once again falling towards the leg side and feeling for it away from his body. Lyon's speed has been perfect. Hurries him, makes him push with hard hands and it's all worked out for Australia. 37/3
18.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, doesn't need to dive this time! That's 10 wickets for Lyon in this Test! Sensational offspin bowling. Dip and rip. Shakib sees this coming for his middle, so he has to play. Slightly in front of his body. He follows the ball with his hands. Gets the outside edge high on the bat, and it is straight to Warner. 39/4
39.1 to Sabbir Rahman, that's the end of Sabbir and you have to say this was coming. What was he trying to do? He'll do well to look into the coach's eyes. 20th wicket in the series for Lyon. Skips down the pitch but what does he do after? Lunge further to defend. This delivery pitches and scoots low on the bounce, but Wade stays nice and low, gathers the ball cleanly and disturbs the stumps. He was in complete control. If you ever needed reassurance about Wade's glove work, here's another endorsement. Brain freeze from Sabbir. 97/6
59.1 to Mominul Haque, Cummins' brilliance has ended Mominul's stay. Lyon becomes the highest wicket-taker in 2017. This one was tossed up outside leg from over the wicket, it gripped and spun away sharply, Mominul looks to sweep against the turn but didn't get under the delivery and ended up top-edging it towards deep backward square. The error was induced alright, but Cummins, who has pranced in without losing intensity, was super quick to charge in and then dive forward to complete a low catch. Mominul's defiance is over, it's a wicket Bangladesh dearly didn't want to lose at the stroke of tea.. 149/8
68.4 to Taijul Islam, arm ball smashes off stump out. Slides this one through, good length ball outside off, and it's quite a sight if you're a bowler. Stumps in all sorts of trouble. This is the highest match-haul by an Australian in Asia. 156/9
Steve O'Keefe22.264922.191046000
19.4 to Nasir Hossain, taken at first slip. This is all real. Bangladesh are five-down. Good length, regulation away spinner outside off. He's shown no propensity for leaving a ball out there today. Goes after another one. Doesn't get to the pitch. Outside edge taken easily. 43/5
71.2 to Mustafizur Rahman, off stump takes a battering again. Tossed up at off stump. His bat comes from leg side, trying to jab at it. Not good enough to do that. Gets stuck inside the line and the ball skids past the outside edge to smash the stump and end the innings. 157/10

Mustafizur Rahman511613.20212000
4.5 to DA Warner, holes to deep midwicket. This bouncer surprises him. He's very, very late on the hook. No control, falling into the leg side, eyes off the ball, bat jammed near the throat. Superb bowling. 13/1
Shakib Al Hasan613515.83234100
10.4 to MT Renshaw, what is happening? Poor from Renshaw. Moved far too across to defend. This ball pitched on length outside off and skidded on to kiss the outside edge. Mushfiqur took an excellent catch. Could've just let it go instead of poking at that.. 48/3
Taijul Islam402616.50123100
9.1 to SPD Smith, there's another. Smith rocks back to cut but this ball skids back in and cramps him for room, gets a thick bottom-edge through to Mushfiqur. Smart catch, Smith didn't even wait for the umpire to raise his finger.. 44/2
