Bangladesh lose three wickets in quick succession against Australia

Bangladesh and Australia captain Mushfiqur Rahim and Steve Smith during the toss

Glenn Maxwell represented Australia's last real hope but Shakib bowled him with the first ball of the afternoon session to leave Bangladesh on the brink. The Australian team scored 217 runs in reply.

Australia bowled out Bangladesh for 260 and then suffered a spectacular top-order collapse of their own to leave them reeling at 18 for three after the spin-dominated opening day of the first Test yesterday.

Australia have called up spinner Steve O'Keefe to replace injured quick Josh Hazlewood for the second and final Test against Bangladesh.

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

Olympic Runner Found Dead In Arizona Swimming Pool
Torrence was an accomplished runner at Cal-Berkley before winning the 2009 US indoor championships 3,000 meter final. Police did not suspect any foul play but local medical examiners are investigating his death.

Steve Smith contemplates his Australian team's defeat to Bangladesh. "After this Test match they will show a lot more respect".

Stumps on Day Three in Dhaka and David Warner has dragged a too close to call encounter in Australia's favour with an unbeaten 74*.

Shakib gave Nathan Lyon a send-off on the first day, while David Warner, Steven Smith and Matthew Wade all reacted to the sledging at different points on the third and fourth day.

Another loss in next week's second Test in Chittagong will send Australia to their lowest ever Test ranking of sixth.

A terrorist group: Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility, though the identification of these three is still taking place. The deceased cop was identified as Constable Imtiyaz Ahmad, a resident of south Kashmir's Qazigund area.

The day-four pitch ended up being relatively benign but the visitors still had no answers for the masterful Shakib, who time and again beat Australia's batsmen with turn and flight.

The left-arm finger spinner was considered unfortunate to miss out on the trip to Bangladesh after taking 19 wickets at an average of 23.26, including 12 in the first Test at Pune, on the Test tour of India earlier this year.

Former Sri Lanka cricketer and commentator Russel Arnold also expressed his happiness over neighbours' inspiring win.

Shakib (5-85) celebrated his 50th Test appearance by scoring 84 in the first innings and finishing with a 10-wicket match haul, a performance worthy of his status as the world's top-ranked Test all-rounder. "It was quite hard batting in the second innings here and I thought we did quite well getting 240 in the end".

Trump calls on GOP to nix filibuster
Raising the federal borrowing limit is a must-do item for Congress when lawmakers return to Washington from their summer break. The issue is always a hard one for Republicans, as many hard -line conservatives outright oppose raising the debt ceiling.

"That's the belief we had and also our spinners did a great job", he added, saying Bangladesh would now be looking to seal the series. If the need arises Hazelwood will come out to bat in Australia's second innings but following that, he will fly back to his country.
