Smith blow pegs Australia back

Matt Renshaw says the inconsistent turn in Dhaka made it one of the most challenging pitches he had batted

The recalled Hilton Cartwright earlier made it to 18 before being dismissed with the final ball before tea.

Mustafizur Rahman cramped the southpaw of room, and Imrul Kayes took a juggling catch at leg gully to get Warner's (123) precious wicket. While Bangladesh were bundled out for 305 in their first innings, Australia were 278 for three as some play was lost due to bad weather on Day 3 of the match.

Shakib and Mehidy Hasan also found something from growing footholes either side of the stumps, each finding sharp-turning deliveries that not only claimed wickets but will also put questions in Australian minds.

Australia coach Darren Lehmann lauded David Warner and Peter Handscomb for showing patience as they battled through the Chittagong heat on day two of the second Test against Bangladesh. It's been like a reborn to the game in Bangladesh team with the current crops punching above their weight to beat some big names, including Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. Bangladesh can be backed at 8/1 and the draw is on offer at 100/30.

Smith, who registered his 21st Test half-century, was done in by an arm ball from Taijul that sneaked through the bat-pad gap to hit the middle stump.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Sabbir Rahman had shared a century stand on the first day to steady the Bangladesh innings. The second Test started on September 4 and the hosts scored 253 for the loss of 6 wickets.

"En route back to the hotel last night a window on the Australian team bus was broken".

At one stage on day two, he went 74 balls without finding the fence but, far from being tied down by the hosts' spinners, he and Peter Handscomb pushed themselves to the point of exhaustion by scampering between the wickets to score at almost four runs per over during the final session.

The deficit was down to just 80 and with eight wickets standing, Australia will be feeling very, very good about their position. "And towards the end of the day when you're like that and under stress it's about just getting through each ball, taking your time".

When Agar had Shakib Al Hasan caught behind by Matthew Wade, the tourists were well on top but they were unable to build on that advantage.

"He led the way in how we wanted to play in that partnership".

After a terrific day two, Warner and Handscomb were looking to further close the gap, starting day three at 2-225, but their task was harder after a thunderstorm pushed back play until after lunch.
