Warner, Handscomb tame Tigers in Chittagong

Khawaja stood in the sweltering Chittagong heat with a giant parasol to keep David Warner and Steve Smith cool during the drinks break - and boy did it look awkward. He stitched a partnership with the opener David Warner, taking on the Bangladeshi bowlers who were looking to repeat the heroics of the first Test.

Warner should have been stumped by a ball that virtually rolled late in the day when on 73, only for Mushfiqur to make a complete meal of it - just like he did with his bowling changes and fields.

Warner and Steve Smith put on 93 for the second wicket, however, with the captain scoring a entertaining 58 featuring eight boundaries before being bowled by Taijul Islam. Handscomb had already backed up too far, however, and was run out at the bowler's end thanks to a direct hit. He survived a video review taken by Bangladesh but the ultra edge detected an inside-edge. Pretty good wicket, more traditional sort of subcontinent wicket. However, what was worth noting was that Warner went out of his usual aggressive nature and showed remarkable patience and poise during his knock.

Mushfiqur took a spectacular diving catch to dismiss Matt Renshaw for four but Warner and Smith batted sensibly to reduce the gap.

The West Australian's five overs of gentle seamers were unthreatening on a docile Chittagong wicket as Bangladesh's batsmen dealt with him easily.

Alongside Peter Handscomb (82), the pair amassed 152 runs for the third wicket after the morning session was completely lost to rain.

Expert views: Economic growth slows to 5.7% in April-June
Many analysts had expected the economy to bounce back after the government's crackdown on black market cash past year . Services sector, especially trade, hotels and transport grew 8.7% as against 7% a year ago .

"You have to work very hard for your runs, so to get through and the way they played was excellent", said a satisfied Australia coach Darren Lehmann.

Lyon has now taken five-wicket hauls in each of his past three Tests. "If that's what Bangladesh want to do, that's well within their rights". Ashton Agar tried to replicate his efforts in the first Test, but managed to score only 22 runs before Shakib clean bowled him.

"I probably tinkered with it (his technique) a lot over the last couple of years in these conditions and probably just didn't nail the basics of what I do best ... attacking and then defending".

Rahim was surprised by the sharp turn and bounce that Lyon extracted from the pitch.

Handscomb racked up his 50 off just 74 balls and after showing so much promise in innings in India - he finally kicked on with the job. Cummins fell lbw to Mehedi shortly after, a successful review from the Tigers reinforced by Bangladesh's Nasir Hossain, who could face disciplinary action after raising his index finger while standing next to the umpire.
