Milestone for Shakib as Bangladesh build 88-run lead against Australia

Although Day 2 promised some steady innings from Australia, nothing as such could be seen as Australia were bundled for 217, courtesy opener Matt Renshaw's 45 and Ashton Agar's fightback innings of 41.

However, the tall Australian fast bowler fell short of support and remained not out on 33 on one end as wickets fell from other.

Many years from now, the cricketing romantics will drool over a talented Bangladeshi player with rare talent to take wickets and score runs for fun.

Shakib then took centre stage as he lured Glenn Maxwell (23) down the track before turning the ball away, Mushfiqur Rahim having the simple task of completing the stumping.

"At home we believe that we can beat any side, and we have that confidence".

"Australians are very good at it, we are learning from them", Shakib said when asked about the verbal volleys.

He only saw six deliveries at the crease however, before a misjudged sweep shot on a Shakib Al Hasan-bowled ball caught the top edge of Khawaja's bat.

Mushfiqur said the lower order woes that prevented Bangladesh from driving home their first-innings advantage showed there was plenty of room for improvement.

"But you've got to keep trying to learn and keep trying to get better in these conditions".

It also doubled his feat of smashing a half-century and grabbing 10 wickets in a Test match, and he joined Hadlee as only the second cricketer to achieve the feat a few times. "Hopefully we'll come harder at them in the next test and hopefully we'll seal the series".

"It was a great Test match".

Hazlewood's contribution to the Bangladesh tour may not be over yet, despite the left side strain that team physiotherapist David Beakley said would require "several weeks of rehabilitation".

Smith was on 28 when Tamim Iqbal spilled him at mid-on but Shakib (4-68) was lurking round the corner with his left-arm spin to change the complexion of the match.

The spectators cheered when Australia were all-out at 244 on the second innings on Wednesday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.

"But we let ourselves down in the first innings, we needed to get a lead there and we weren't able capitalise on that and get in front of the game at any point".
