  • Shakib Al Hasan playing his 50th Test alongside Tamim Iqbal scored briskly to arrest Bangladesh's early slide on Day 1

All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan became only the second player in history after Richard Hadlee to take fifer in each innings of his 50th Test as Bangladesh defeated Australia for the first time in Test cricket.

Cummins and Ashton Agar stalled Bangladesh's progress to steer Australia to 193-8 at tea, combining 49 off 143. The win also means Bangladesh will remain unbeaten in yet another home series. Bangladesh spinners claimed the rest of all the 19 wickets to help the Tigers go 1-0 up in the two-match series.

"Obviously a great feeling, beating Australia", he said at the presentation ceremony.

Man of the Match Shakib took ten wickets and also scored 84 runs in the first innings.

Australia entered the fourth day needing 156 runs with eight wickets in hand.

"We fought back after the Tamim-Shakib partnership".

"It was a great Test match".

They were due to play two Tests in the country in October 2015 but the tour was cancelled amid security fears after a wave of attacks by Islamist extremists in the Muslim-majority nation. "He was brilliant. We have been consistent in home conditions".

"We had that confidence and the belief came from the last two to three years. Not many have been watching us but we were quietly doing our job", he said.

City make sensational Raheem Sterling offer as makeweight for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez
The Daily Telegraph claims that City have offered a contract worth £325,000 a week and the 28-year-old has accepted the deal. Another player who could potentially be involved in any deal, this is what one source is telling us, is Sergio Aguero .

Mushfiqur, meanwhile, pointed to Australia's tactic of slowing down proceedings and even resorting to sledging of their tailenders as a sign of being on the back foot.

It's often said that the biggest weapon of an athlete in his mind and Bangladesh proved exactly that. "Not only with bat and ball, but with our body language as well".

Warner instantly reviewed Aleem Dar's decision but replays confirmed it was hitting middle and leg.

Mushfiqur added that his belief was strengthened by the fact that it was an extremely hard wicket to bat on. They won by 20 runs.

"But we should be careful of not becoming too complacent".

He thought his century took his team to victory but failed.

Warner tempered his natural aggression but did not altogether abandon it, as was evident from the 16 boundaries and one six in his belligerent 112. Tamim brought up his 24th Test half century, and second in the match.

Taijul Islam got Peter Handscomb (15), forcing him to edge to slip where Soumya Sarkar made a tough catch possible in his second attempt.

The lower order has got better. "You saw us taking a lead despite scoring just 260 runs on the board".
